The sharp eyes of an RCMP officer didn’t just extend to crime-fighting. On Jan. 12, a police officer on patrol noticed an elderly woman in a wheelchair, who appeared to be in distress as she sat at the end of a driveway on Eighth Avenue SW. The officer stopped to check and found that the wheelchair had become stuck in the heavy ice and snow. The officer was able to help the woman and free her chair.

“All in a day’s work,” notes Sgt. Carlos Tettolowski.
