The badge of the Order is the same as that of the Order of Military Merit, honoring and recognizing the leadership and exceptional service of the men and women of Canada’s police forces.

Sim was born and raised in Fort St. John, graduated from North Peace Secondary in 1980, and began his law enforcement studies at the Lethbridge Community College.

His policing career began with the Lethbridge City Police Force, and in 1986, he joined the Vancouver Police Department.

The rest of his story is a carbon copy of the formulae used by many others in different fields to achieve success.

Hard work, dedication, and many hours of post secondary and in-service-course study allowed him to rise in the ranks, from patrol constable to superintendent.

He’s also the recipient of a Chief Constable’s Unit Citation, a Superintendent’s Commendation and 2 Inspector Commendations.

Jeff and his wife Monica have two teenage children, Kayden and Jenna, and his family, including his mother, Evelyn Sim, who still lives in Fort St. John and serves as President of the North Peace Historical Society, will accompany him to Ottawa for his appointment to the Order by Governor General David Johnston in a September 9th ceremony at Rideau Hall.
