RCMP officers named to Alexa's Team

Seven members of the Prince George RCMP have been named to Alexa's Team.

Established in memory of a young girl who was killed by a drunk driver, to make the team an officer must have taken at least a dozen drivers off the road for being impaired during a calendar year.

Those who made the grade as a result of their performances during 2019 are Cst. David Hallmark, Cpl. Duane Biever, Cst. Adrian Swann, Cst. Arthur Dalman, Cst. Keith McCreadie, Cst. Edward Chan and Cst. Mark Macapinlac.

"These officers are to be commended for their dedication and commitment ensuring our roadways are safe for everyone," said Prince George RCMP Insp. Lori Orstad in a statement issued Tuesday. "Keeping road users safe is a priority for the Detachment and our officers. Their efforts are very much appreciated."

Alexa Middelaer was only 4 1/2 years old when, in 2008, she was killed by a drunk driver while she stood on the side of the road feeding a horse with her aunt in Ladner. Carol Berner was subsequently sentenced to 30 months in jail.

Typically, Middelaer's mother tours the province to present awards to those who've made Alexa's Team but because of the pandemic the ceremonies were not held this year.

Meanwhile, anyone who sees an impaired driver on the road is urged to call 911 immediately.
