Const. Aaron Kehler was given his award by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton.

Courage sets apart Langley Mounties

RCMP officers who put themselves at risk were honoured.

Several Langley RCMP officers were among the 66 officers from around B.C. singled out at Police Honours Night.

Const. Aaron Kehler was among the 22 who received the Award of Valour, the highest award for an officer in B.C.

Kehler was placed at personal risk while preventing an aggressive woman, armed with a knife, from jumping out a third floor window.

The woman had already injured one person, tried to attack another, and attempted to stab Kehler as well.

She was arrested and held in custody.

Three more officers, Const. Warren Long, Const. Audrey Parent, and Const. Inderjeet Sandhu were given the Meritorious Service Honours.

On Oct. 6, 2014, a suicidal woman texted a friend saying goodbye. The friend called the police, and officers found the woman who had overdosed, and had stopped breathing.

The officers found a faint pulse and performed CPR until ambulance paramedics arrived. The paramedics said the officers had saved the woman’s life.

The woman was taken to a hospital and later regained consciousness.
