Delta Police support athletes at the Special Olympics BC Winter Games

The Delta Police Department (DPD) is proud to continually support the Special Olympics BC (SOBC) through fundraising efforts, community events, and athlete support.

DPD’s own Inspector Debra McLeod has been an integral part in supporting the SOBC, and will be representing the DPD at the SOBC Winter Games taking place in Vernon, BC on Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23.

This year, the Fraser-River-Delta region is sending over 80 athletes including Delta’s own Brad Smith (floor hockey and curling), Kim Davies (curling), and Corey Duchene (alpine skiing). Each of these athletes has been successful in obtaining medals in previous local, provincial, and national games.

“I am very connected to Brad, Kim, Corey, and many others. This is the most rewarding part of being a police officer, and a great way to give back to our community.” says Insp. McLeod.

Delta Police has an additional connection to Brad as well, as he works for the department.

We wish Brad, Kim, Corey, and all the other athletes our best, and thank Insp. McCleod for her commitment to Special Olympics over the last 20 years.
