Former Clearwater-based conservation officer Kevin Van Damme was awarded a Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medal on B.C’s first-ever Conservation Officer Day in Victoria on Nov. 3.
On the 110th anniversary of the conservation officer service, Van Damme was recognized for going above and beyond regular duties.
Van Damme’s award, which was announced earlier, was one of several given out during the day.
The award also recognizes outstanding dedication and service to British Columbians and the environment.
Van Damme presently works out of Kamloops.
