THUNDER BAY – Police Chief Robert Herman is being honoured by the Governor General. Chief Herman will be invested in the Order of Merit.
The Order of Merit of the Police Forces honours a career of exceptional service or distinctive merit displayed by the men and women of Canadian police forces, and recognizes their commitment to this country. The primary focus is on exceptional merit, contributions to policing and community development.
The commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Principal Commander of the Order, submits recommendations for appointment to the governor general on behalf of an advisory committee. Nominations for appointment to the Order may be made by submitting the name of a member or employee of a police force to the commanding officer of that police force.
Chief Herman is set to retire in July, after a long career with the Thunder Bay Police Service.
