The award was given to Cst. Richards as part of the 3rd Annual Champions against Homophobia & Transphobia Community Awards Night, held at Club 717 in Oshawa.
“I’m honoured to be recognized by our community partner, PFLAG,” said Cst. Richards. “As a service, we will continue to foster relationships with our LGBTQ community, both internally and in the public, and build upon our successes.”
The event was organized by PFLAG, a national advocacy group devoted to all Canadians with issues concerning sexual orientation and gender identity. Following the ceremony, a silent auction was held with its proceeds benefitting PFLAG Durham and the AIDS Committee of Durham.
