The BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation is honouring 31 police officers from Northern Region of B.C. as members of Alexa’s Team 2009.
Alexa’s Team was formed in remembrance of Alexa Middelaer who lost her life at age four and a half after being run down by a vehicle driven by an individual who has since been charged with two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm and death, and two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and death.
Membership on Alexa’s Team recognizes police officers around the province that have been diligent in their efforts to remove impaired drivers from the roads of our communities.
Last year the Foundation honoured 26 officers from Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. This year officers from Vancouver Island and Prince George and Kelowna regions will also be welcomed in to “Alexa’s Team” for a total of 174 members.
