Jacobi receives medal

A local conservation officer, Steve Jacobi, has been recognized for exemplary service.

He is among 11 members of the Conservation Officer Service who were given official recognition for "going above and beyond to protect British Columbia's residents and natural resources," a government statement reads.

They were presented with Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medals during an annual recertification training session this week, specifically for serving the province for 20 years.

"I am extremely proud of all our conservation officers, and the dedication they show in protecting both public safety and the environment. These officers serve the province with great integrity and courage. Congratulations to those members of the Conservation Officer Service awarded with this great honour," said Mary Polak, Environment Minister.

Sergeant Jacobi has worked in the Chilliwack area for the past 14 years. Previously, he was an officer in Squamish.
