John Petropoulos Leadership Award expansion

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

The John Petropoulos Leadership Award is expanding!

The award – a collaboration between the JPMF and the Calgary Police Service (CPS) – is given on an annual basis to a member from District 6, where Const. John Petropoulos worked as a police officer.

It recognizes a constable who displays those attributes that John himself demonstrated – integrity, dedication to police work, commitment to excellence, courage and honour. The award includes a cash prize and a stay at the Delta Lodge in Kananaskis. The prize offers an opportunity for the award recipient to enjoy a getaway with loved ones and hopefully leave the stresses of police work behind for a few days. {read more}
