Two of Victoria’s finest have been recognized for their leadership and exceptional service.

On Sept. 18, Deputy Chief constables Steve Ing and Del Manak received Canada’s Order of Merit of the Police Forces at a Rideau Hall ceremony in Ottawa.

Ing has been with the Victoria police for more than 27 years and served as a reserve constable for the Vancouver Police Department for three years prior.

During his 27 years of service, Ing has worked in nearly every section of the department. In 2003, he received the Lieutenant Governor’s Meritorious Service Medal in recognition of his role in rescuing a suicidal female from a fifth-storey ledge of a building. Ing is currently responsible for executive insight of the administration for the department.

Manak was born and raised in Victoria and started his policing career with four years of service with the Vancouver Police Department.

Manak has an extensive collision background, spending five years in the traffic section, and was a collision analyst and part of the escort and drill team. Selected to set up a provincial government pilot project, Manak helped create the Integrated Road Safety Unit (IRSU) in the CRD. The success of the pilot led to the expansion of IRSU units throughout the province.

The Order of Merit of the Police Forces honours the leadership and exceptional service displayed by officers across Canada. The primary focus is on exceptional merit, contributions to policing and community development.
