Trail council presented RCMP Cst. Chris Elwood (right) with a Recognition for Bravery this week. The Trail officer saved a woman’s life earlier this year. Coun. Kevin Jolly said, “On behalf of a grateful city, mayor and council, we would like to present you with this recommendation for your courageous act of bravery of Feb. 6, where at considerable risk to your own personal safety, you hurled down a 200-foot embankment and into the Columbia River to save a woman who was in obvious distress.” The commendation was bittersweet, however, because Elwood is transferring his job later this summer. Jolly added,”We really appreciate everything you’ve done for this community and we can’t say enough, how much we are going to miss you.” (Sheri Regnier photo)
