This year, four members of the RCMP Richibucto Detachment were recognized. CPO Jean Francois Leblanc, Cpl. Ricky LeBlond and Cst. Erika Norris received the Province of New Brunswick Certificate of Recognition. This certificate is presented to individuals, organizations or businesses who have made an outstanding contribution to the development, implementation, promotion and enhancement of crime prevention and safe communities.
The fourth member of the RCMP Richibucto Detachment to be recognized was Sgt. Maxime Babineau. He was awarded the Constable Leo ‘’Tyler’’ Francis Award.
