Kimberley RCMP Trio Recognized for Impaired Driving Enforcement

Three members of the Kimberley RCMP were all recognized and welcomed to Alexa’s Team after removing more than 100 impaired drivers from the highways and roadways around Kimberley last year.

Cst. Dylan Cross, Cst. Gordon Skulnec and Cst. Scott Payne were all recognized for their efforts and named to Alexa’s Team, which pays tribute to police that make significant contributions to reducing the number of alcohol or drug-impaired drivers in British Columbia.

In 2008, 4-year-old Alexa Middelaer was tragically killed by a drunk driver. Demanding something had to be done, her parents founded Alexa’s Team in hopes of changing impaired driving laws and prevent future tragedies. Since its inception, over 2,500 police officers are now members of Alexa’s Team, helping to remove thousands upon thousands of impaired drivers from the road over the past decade.

“I am very proud of these officers and their commitment to improving road safety in and around Kimberley,” said Sgt. Chris Newel, Kimberley RCMP Detachment Commander.
