Carl Anthony "Campy" Crawford Award
Do you know someone who demonstrates qualities like leadership, commitment to social justice, fairness, volunteerism, sportsmanship and equality in the community?
Tell their story with a nomination for the Campy Crawford Award, in honour of Carly Anthony “Campy” Crawford, who is remembered for instilling these core values in policing and the community.
“Campy” joined the Sydney Police Service in 1964, becoming the first black municipal police officer in Nova Scotia and east of Montreal. A long time resident of Whitney Pier, “Campy” was well-known and respected the community; he exemplified fair play and teamwork and was a role model to many, always mindful of equality and a commitment to justice.
The Campy Crawford Award is presented annually at the Harmony Breakfast, hosted by the CBU Human Rights Office, CBRM, CBRPS and Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission.
