Deputy Police Chief Murray Cowan receives provincial commendation

One of the longest serving members of the Estevan Police Service (EPS) has received a commendation from the provincial governor.

Deputy Police Chief Murray Cowan was presented with the distinction by Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Malloy on Sept. 7. The commission is presented to officers who attain the rank of inspector, deputy chief or chief.

Cowan noted that EPS Chief Paul Ladouceur has previously received his commission.

Officers from Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw were also presented with their commissions last week.

Cowan said it was a good ceremony and an interesting event to be part of.

“It was quite a thing to see everyone there, and to actually rekindle some friendships,” said Cowan. “I knew everyone that was there that was receiving this commission.”

There was a brief speech on Cowan’s career in policing, from when he was a recruit in the mid-1990s to where he is now. He was also presented with a certificate congratulating him on the award.  

Estevan is one of six cities in the province with a municipal police service, and Cowan said the executive offices in each of those services are small.

“As we attend meetings and committees, and sit on committees around the province, we tend to get to know each other quite well,” said Cowan.
