Two MJPS Members Receive Saskatchewan Protective Services Medal

Two long-time Moose Jaw Police Service (MJPS) members were honoured for their years of service last week in Regina at the Government of Saskatchewan Protocol Office.

Deputy Chief Rick Johns and Staff Sergeant Trish Seman were each presented with a Saskatchewan Protective Services Medal by Lieutenant Governor, Russ Mirasty.

For 25 years, Deputy Chief Johns has been a member of the MJPS. Over his career, Deputy Chief Johns worked in our Community Policing Division, Community and Strategic Services Unit, Integrated Organized Crime, and the Criminal Investigation Section (CIS). This all led to his current role as the MJPS’s Deputy Chief, a position he has held for five years.

“It was an honour to attend the Government House and receive this medal from Lieutenant Governor, Russ Mirasty.” says Deputy Chief Johns. “It was also a privilege to watch many other first responders in the province be recognized with a Protective Services Medal for their contributions to public safety.”

S/Sgt. Seman has been with the MJPS for 28 years and currently leads the Information Management Unit (IMU). Throughout her time with the Service, she has been a part of the Community Policing Division, Community and Strategic Services Unit, and the Criminal Investigation Section (CIS).

“It has been a great honor and privilege to work with incredible people and serve my community for 28 years,” said S/Sgt. Seman.

The Saskatchewan Protective Services Medal recognizes exemplary long service for individuals working in a direct capacity to protect people and/or property and supervisory personnel in the public service sectors who ensure the safety, security, and protection of Saskatchewan citizens.

The Saskatchewan Protective Services Medal honours protective services providers and focuses attention on the efforts and work of police, fire and emergency professionals, and others working in the field of safety and security.
