BEST OF THE WEST
THE unsung heroes of our region were celebrated in Dalby last week for their service to our community.
The Queensland Police Service awards for the Dalby and Burnett region were held at Dalby Leagues Club on Wednesday.
Acting Assistant Commissioner Brian Swan said these awards showed the dedication of officers.
“The outstanding efforts of each officer enhances our reputation as one of the best police services in the world,” he said.
“It is important ... we acknowledge those defending our regions.”
Sergeant Mark Woitowitz said it was an honour to receive his award, stating it was hard to believe he had been in the job for 20 years.
“It is fantastic to be recognised,” he said.
“It seems like only yesterday I started. I still love my job to this day.”
