Published

2 minute read

Red Deer, Alberta – If you’re interested in giving back to your community in meaningful ways, volunteering with the Red Deer RCMP Victim Services Unit (VSU) may be just what you’re looking for. Join VSU staff and volunteer victim advocates at a volunteer information event to learn more: Saturday, February 10 at 10:00 am in the Community Room at the downtown Red Deer RCMP detachment at 4602 – 51 Avenue.
 
“It takes a special person to work with victims of crime or of tragic events,” says Constable Holly Erb, Victim Services Coordinator for Red Deer RCMP. “It’s a great fit for those who have a knack for caring and want to make a difference in the lives of their fellow Red Deerians.”
 
The hour-long event includes a presentation about the role of victim services advocates and a Q & A session, followed by the opportunity to talk with staff and volunteers to find out if this special role is a fit for your skills. Light refreshments are provided.
 
Victim Services advocates are screened for suitability, go through enhanced RCMP security clearance and receive specialized training to help people after a crime or traumatic event. Their work may include assisting with next-of-kin notifications, providing information on government forms such as victim impact statements, restitution, and financial benefits, and offering guidance, support and community referrals for victims as they navigate the criminal justice system. 
 
To volunteer with Victim Services, you must:
·         be 18 years of age or older
·         be a Canadian resident or Landed Immigrant who has lived in Canada a minimum of five years
·         complete RCMP enhanced security clearance
·         complete the Alberta Solicitor General online training course after acceptance into the program
 
“If you volunteer with Victim Services, you’ll be trained to offer professional, compassionate and confidential services to victims of crime and trauma,” says Erb. “Advocates work closely with RCMP and provide an essential service to the community.”

City of Red Deer Bob Stollings Award winner announced

Each year, The City of Red Deer is proud to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our staff through the annual Employee Recognition Awards. With COVID-19 restrictions in place, how the awards were handed out looked a lot different this year. Awards were personally delivered to each recipient rather than at an evening awards banquet.The awards celebrate long-term service employees and offers special recognition for those who have excelled in innovation, environmental stewardship and exceptional growth.The most anticipated award of the year is the Bob Stollings Memorial Award. This award was established by City Council in 1985 and is presented every year to honour Robert (Bob) E. Stollings, a loyal and dedicated employee of The City of Red Deer from 1960 to 1984. The recipient of this award has displayed outstanding civic performance in alignment with The City’s Cornerstone Values – Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence. Nominations are submitted by fellow coworkers detailing the employee’s achievements professionally and interpersonally, along with letters of support.

We are proud to announce this year’s Bob Stollings Memorial Award recipient is Char Rausch. She is the Corporate Events Specialist, but has held many roles within The City throughout her more than 35 years of service. From her time with the RCMP, Mayor and City Manager’s Office, Legislative Services and now with Corporate Communications, Char has always brought her dedication to community and never-ending energy, to her work.

“Those who know Char, know the passion, commitment to excellence, and complete care she puts into everything she does,” says Tracy Bruce, Human Resources Manager. “More than 35 years of service, Char has lived our corporate values and we are happy to celebrate her accomplishments by presenting her with the Bob Stollings Award.”
