A local police officer has been recognized for going above and beyond.
Bon Accord RCMP Corporal Sheldon Robb was acknowledged with a plaque of achievement at town hall on Tuesday (August 22). 
"I feel like I'm just doing my job, community policing is really important and the town of Bon Accord is no exception," said Robb.
Community members gathered to show their support, with mayor Randy Boyd awarding Robb for his efforts.
"It's important to keep a positive working relationship with the town council and the people of the town, young and old."
