Former Sicamous RCMP Const. Dustan Miller recently received an award of valour

Former Sicamous RCMP Const. Dustan Miller was among 56 men and women in law enforcement acknowledged for bravery and dedication beyond the call of duty.

Miller and company were honoured at the B.C. Police Honours Night, held Thursday, Nov. 17.

Miller and 15 other officers were the recipients of an award of valour, the highest award for a police officer in B.C.

A news release from the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General states Miller earned the honour during an incident in which he saved a suicidal woman from jumping off a bridge.

“Policing is no ordinary career. It takes guts, stamina, bravery and quick thinking,” states Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Morris. “Each and every one of these awards reflects a situation that has brought out the very best in some of the men and women who serve British Columbians every day. These awards also remind us just how well served we are by those on the front line in times of great need.”

Miller recently transferred from the Sicamous detachment to serve with the RCMP Northern Rockies Traffic Services.
