Surrey RCMP Inspector Trent Rolfe was awarded the prestigious Order of Merit of the Police Forces at a special ceremony in Ottawa in recognition of his outstanding contributions to policing.

Rolfe has been with Surrey detachment since 2009 and has been a Mountie for 23 years.

During that time he served on the RCMP's Unsolved Homicide Unit and directed B.C.'s Integrated Gang Task Force as operations officer during a sustained flareup of Lower Mainland gang violence.

Rolfe was also part of the first criminal organization prosecutions in B.C., setting a precedent for wiretaps in such cases and leading to national training standards.

The Order of Merit of the Police Forces is an honour based on the highest qualities of citizenship, service to Canada, to the police community and to humanity at large.

Governor General David Johnston presented the award Wednesday.
