A few local police officers have been recognized for longtime service, bravery, and exemplary performance of duty.

The North East Region Ontario Provincial Police Awards Ceremony was held in West Nipissing on Thursday, and OPP say dozens of officers were recognized during the event.

That includes Superior East OPP Constable Sharon Reil, who received a Commissioners Commendation for Exemplary Performance of Duty, as well as Superior East Constables Amber Bochek and Dylan Jollineau, who received Commissioners Citations for Bravery.

All three are noted to be from the Wawa detachment.

Two local officers were recognized for longtime service: Sergeant Dale Burns of the Superior East detachment in White River received a "Police Exemplary Service Medal" for 20 years service; and Constable Daniel Lefrancois of the Chapleau detachment received a Quarter Century Club Award.
