Four officers in the running for Kiwanis Club's 'Top Cop'

  • Print

The Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg has announced its four finalists for the most community-minded police officers in the city.

The four finalists for "Top Cop" are Patrol Sergeant Nick Paulet, Staff Sergeant Bud Guest, Patrol Sergeant Nicole Sabourin-Friesen and Patrol Sergeant Kirk Van Alstyne.

The winner will be announced during the second-annual Top Cop Community Volunteer Awards & Gala at The Fairmont Winnipeg Hotel on November 8.

Bruce Berven, co-chair of the event, said all four officers went above and beyond their role as police officers.

"They are mentors, fundraisers, event coordinators, coaches and committee leaders. Our nominees showcase a strong level of commitment and care for our community," he said.

Paulet founded the Winnipeg Police Half Marathon, which has become one of Winnipeg’s premiere fundraisers for the Canadian Cancer Society. His team is hoping to top the $1-million mark in total money raised after the race’s 10th edition next May.

Guest sits on the board of directors of the Manitoba Criminal Justice Association (MCJA) and also volunteers as the director of the Winnipeg Police Service Community Challenge Golf Tournament, which raises funds for an annual scholarship program.

Sabourin-Friesen has dedicated many hours to the Panther Gymnastics Club as both their president and volunteer coordinator. She also works with inner-city schools, Siloam Mission and the United Way.

Van Alystyne serves as co-chair of the annual Manitoba Chapter Motorcycle Ride for Dad event. Each year the event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for prostate cancer research and education.

Tickets for the dinner cost $125 each and a table of 10 can be purchased for $1,500 by calling 204-956-0250 or by visiting www.winnipeg.kiwanisone.org. Proceeds from the event go to Boys & Girls Clubs of Winnipeg as well as local charities chosen by the four nominated police officers.
