Halton police recently welcomed two classes of Victim Services Unit volunteers to their service at a graduation ceremony that was held in Milton.

The Victim Services Graduation took place on Sept. 28 at the Milton Sports Centre.

According to Michelle Barclay, Victim Support Coordinator for Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS), the event celebrated 19 2020 graduates and five 2022 graduates.

The event featured a total of 34 Victim Services Volunteers as well as a keynote speaker, the Halton Police Chorus, Pipes and Drums and Honour Guard. The 2021 Volunteer of the Year was also honoured during the ceremony.

Additionally, according to Barclay, three special community members were gifted with a #convoplate from the Paul Hansell Foundation for their role in promoting mental health awareness and educating volunteers on how victim services can be of assistance in tragic circumstances.

“Thank you for helping make a difference in our community,” wrote Halton police on Twitter.
