Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, presided over an Order of Merit of the Police Forces investiture ceremony at Rideau Hall.
During the ceremony, the Governor General, who is chancellor of the Order, bestowed the honour on 4 Officers and 35 Members.
The Order of Merit of the Police Forces was created in 2000, to recognize conspicuous merit and exceptional service by members and employees of Canadian police forces whose contributions extend beyond protection of the community. Three levels of membership with post-nominal letters reflect long-term, outstanding service: Commander (C.O.M.), Officer (O.O.M.) and Member (M.O.M.).
