Officers receive Guelph Police Community Partnership Awards
On Wednesday May 21, 2014 S/Cst Deschamps and S/Cst Kohlmeier both recieved Community Partnership Awards during the Guelph Police Services awards at the Hanlon Convention Centre
Both officers recieved awards during a call for service where S/Cst Deschamps and S/Cst Kohlmeier attended an incident whereby an individual barricade himself inside a room and set fire to it while he was inside. Both officers attended the smoke filled suite and attempted to breach the door where the male was but were unable. A fire hose was used to put the fire out through a small opening which deemed the incident to be life saving.
Other emergency personnel arrived and were able to eventually breach the door, saving the occupant.
