ESTEVAN - Estevan Police Service member Const. Michelle Beaulieu was recognized for her contribution to the battle against drunk driving.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Estevan chapter presented Beaulieu with the Van De Vorst Family Award for her work in getting impaired drivers off the road Tuesday evening.
The award is presented to officers who arrest a certain number of impaired drivers in a year.
The recognition is named after the Van De Vorsts, a family of four killed by an impaired driver in a collision near Saskatoon in 2016. Members of the family created the award to salute officers.
The next week’s edition of the Mercury will have more on the story.
