The Brockville Police Service is proud to report that Sgt. Andrew Harvie has been awarded a certificate of commendation by the Governor General of Canada.
“On behalf of his Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, I am pleased to inform you that a certificate of commendation has been awarded to Sgt. Andrew Harvie in recognition of your actions following an incident in Brockville, on October 15th, 2015.”
Sgt. Harvie without hesitation entered the frigid water of the St Lawrence River moments after a vehicle had submerged at the Home Street Boat ramp. Sgt. Harvie after repeated attempts to open doors and break the side windows of the submerged vehicle successfully broke the rear window and rescued the lone female occupant from the vehicle.
“We could not be more proud of Sgt. Harvie for his actions on October 15th, 2015 and in his receipt of this award. Sgt. Harvie is a leader in our organization and we are grateful for his dedication to service in our community. We would also like to thank St. John Ambulance for their nomination of Sgt. Harvie and their continued work in our community.” – Chief Scott Fraser
