Cpt. Ken Burton receives Order of Merit of the Police Forces
VMM is excited to announce that our current interim Executive Director, Kenneth Burton, has become one of 17 members of the RCMP to recieve investiture into the Order of Merit of the Police Forces.
The OMPF is one of the most prestigious distinctions an employee of a police agency can receive. Unlike many awards that recognize a singular event, the OMPF recognizes leadership and exceptional service or distinctive merit, and commitment to this country as demonstrated throughout their career.
There are three levels within the Order, Commander of the Order of Merit (C.O.M.), Officer of the Order of Merit (O.O.M.), and Member of the Order of Merit (M.O.M.). Cpt. Burton has been appointed as a Member of the Order of Merit. The investiture ceremony will take place in September.
