“When I was 11 years old then I got a chance to watch the TV episode entitled “Dog the Bounty Hunter – You can run but You Can’t Hide” and it impacted and influenced a lot on my mind, so, this is the reason for my choosing the career in police is to help my community and built leadership qualities. As E. Roosevelt wrote that “One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes, and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility”. So, my responsibility is always to give back to my community, and when the chance comes up against, I am constantly upward for the new challenges,” said 19 years young with that enigmatic smile Jasjeet Singh Rehill who received the Youth Award at the Sixth Annual Calgary Police Commission Community Policing Awards, in an exclusive interview with The Weekly Asian Connections.

The Calgary Police Commission Community Policing Awards are designed to give recognition to citizens for their contributions to community policing and to a safe city. These awards honour individuals and groups that contribute to community policing in an extraordinary way.
Jasjeet’s parents immigrated in 2006, with Jasjeet just 10 years old. Since then he has been displaying zeal to make a mark for himself. The award comes as a complement to the strong leadership that he provides in his role as the Calgary Police Cadet Corps Regimental Sergeant Major. He exemplifies not only what a Cadet should be but also what a Cadet RSM should be. Commenting on his reaction on receiving the award, Jasjeet said, highlighted the citation. “Well, I have had recognition at every step during my tenure with Calgary Police Cadet Corps and it was more proud moment for me and for my community and my parents.” Modest that he is, Jasjeet attributes his success to Calgary Police Services and Juno Beach Academy of Canadian Studies. “As Calgary Police Services has Cadet Corps program and I got an opportunity to enroll myself in this program in 2010 and I retired from the highest position of Chief Cadet of Calgary Police in 2014 which I dreamt and as a part of my study up to Grade 12 in Juno Beach Academy where I was recognized as a Youth Community Leader,” said Jasjeet.
“The most creditable monitoring personnel are my seniors who recognized my abilities and made me eligible for this position and vice-versa I proved myself at par their expectations,” added Jasjeet. The youth in him is responsive to the Calgary Police Youth Mentorship Team too. “I am very much grateful to all members especially to A/Inspector Clare Smart, Calgary Police Community & Youth Services Section who mentored and encouraged me at every step of profession and life for the sake of both and one year in Auxiliary Cadet Program with the Community & Youth Services Section,” said Jasjeet. “I am also grateful to the Mr. Black, Principal of my school, Juno Beach Academy, who mentored me for my study and sponsored me for grad tour of France in 2014 on the bases of my education,” added Jasjeet. He is looking forward to a career in law enforcement and have experience as Auxiliary Cadet Calgary Police apart from Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice. “So, I feel fortunate myself and I get my desired career and educational opportunity here. It is great. My goal is to become a Law Enforcement Officer. My long-term plan is to give back to the community,” added Jasjeet, the pride of the community.
