BEST OF THE WEST

Western Times - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
