On July 6, the Nova Scotia Criminal Justice Association awarded Constable Andrew Conrad of Halifax Regional Police with the 2014 John Dunlop Memorial Award.
John Dunlop was a Regional Supervisor with Correctional Services, Province of Nova Scotia. He passed away in 1977 at age 42, and is remembered for his active interest in and dedication to young people, community programs and sports in Halifax and Truro. He was extremely active in the Atlantic Provinces Criminology and Corrections Association and worked for ten years in the criminal justice system in Nova Scotia. Since 1977, the Association has been honouring a member of the criminal justice system by presenting this Award in memory of John Dunlop. Cst. Conrad received this award for being heavily involved with youth in the Spryfield/Sambro area. For the past seven years, he has been mentoring youth at the Spryfield Boys and Girls Club, recruiting young people to participate in HRP Sports Pals program, and playing an integral role within the Chebucto Connections organization, recently soliciting prom dresses and suits for children going to prom who can’t afford such items. He also works with the Spryfield Single Parents Centre, collecting books for their Annual Book Bonanza. Between 2010-2014, he participated on behalf of HRP in the IWK Child Safety Link national pilot project, which focused on child safety in vehicles.
Halifax Regional Police commends Cst. Conrad on receiving the prestigious John Dunlop Memorial Award. We’re very proud of everything he has accomplished and continues to undertake in his current role as Community Response Officer in the Spryfield/Sambro area.
