New West officers recognized on Alexa’s Team
It has been seven years since four-year-old Alexa Middelaer was killed by an alcohol-impaired driver. In that time the police, her family and their supporters have worked tirelessly to make British Columbia’s roads safer for everyone — and they are.
On Thursday, May 7, ICBC and MADD Canada honoured 124 members of the 2014 Alexa’s Team from the Lower Mainland for continuing to keep communities safe by removing drivers affected by alcohol or drugs from the roads.
Officers recognized from the New Westminster Police Department included: Greater Vancouver IRSU members Const. Billie Aadmi, Const. Pete Comeau, Const. Jeff Ferguson, Cpl. Grant Gottgetreu, Const. Michael Littlefield, Const. Scott Pho, Const. Darren Ramdour, Const. Barry Selver, Const. Mike Wise, Const. George Wong, Cpl. Monty Zimmer, Const. Ted Ishii, NWPD Patrol A Watch; Const. Ryan Newman, NWPD Patrol C Watch; and Const. James Crowston, NWPD traffic.
In total, 839 impaired drivers were removed off the streets by these officers with Comeau, Wise, Wong, and Zimmer receiving all-star designations and recognition as being among the top impaired driving investigators in the province with each taking at least 34 criminally impaired drivers off the road in 2014.
