Heroes Beyond the Badge
OnStar and OACP honour First Responders

The Heroes Beyond the Badge award is given to exceptional public safety professionals. Each month, an individual is honoured for their dedication to our community, outstanding acts of valour and extraordinary service. We honour all First Responders and salute those who go above and beyond the call of duty.

Kim Manuel
Staff Sergeant Kim Manuel of the St. Thomas Police Service goes above and beyond in her law enforcement role — one of many reasons why she is our first honoree for this award. Not only does she protect her community, SSgt Manuel serves as our Law Enforcement Torch Run Coordinator and has organized numerous events over the years. She even assisted in replacing an Olympian’s stolen bike. We are proud and grateful to have her on our force.
