The Durham Elder Abuse Network has awarded the Tammy Rankin Legacy Organization/Agency Award to Durham Regional Police Service.
Chief Rollauer and Deputy Chief Bertrim proudly accepted the award from Senior and Community Health Worker Jennifer Josephson.
The legacy award was established in 2020 in memory of Tammy Rankin who was the Senior Safety Advisor for the Municipality of Durham, a founding member of the Durham Elder Abuse Network (D.E.A.N.) and developed a partnership with the Durham Regional Police Seniors Support Coordinator position. Tammy worked tirelessly to advocate for and support the senior population in our community. She was known for going above and beyond the scope of her position and putting “her seniors first.”
The award provides an opportunity to showcase an inspiring individual or organization with a powerful story about going above and beyond to make a meaningful impact in the lives of seniors and their families, including Covid support.
