Sheriff and Island Health officer receive awards for helping police and preventing harm

The Victoria Police Department honoured two area residents with civic service awards last week for jumping in to help officers protect individuals in serious distress.

Anthony Norman, a protection services officer with the Vancouver Island Health Authority, prevented a man from harming himself at Royal Jubilee Hospital in early December.

Deputy Sheriff Allen Kirschke was recognized for helping two VicPD officers subdue a distraught man at the Victoria Court House on Jan. 27.

VicPD Chief Frank Elsner presented the awards to both men at a ceremony at VicPD headquarters on Feb. 6.
