Alexa’s Team has three Upper Fraser Valley members this year.

RCMP Constables Mike Sabulsky and Kyle Bowness of Chilliwack, and Ryan Feser of Hope, are among police officers from across the province honoured as new members of Alexa’s Team during a ceremony at the Justice Institute of BC on April 17.

Alexa’s Team was founded in 2008 following the death of four-year-old Alexa Middelaer who was struck and killed by an impaired driver. The team, supported by Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD), ICBC, the RCMP, and municipal police agencies across B.C., recognizes police officers who have excelled at removing impaired drivers from the province’s roadways.

Constable Sabulsky has served with the RCMP since 2008 and posted to Chilliwack in July of 2011, where he’s a member of the Traffic Services Unit. A passionate advocate against impaired driving, he has been a member of Alexa’s Team for the past seven years.

Constable Kyle Bowness works in Chilliwack as a General Duty officer since his arrival to the detachment in 2016.

“Constables Sabulsky and Bowness’s selection to Alexa’s Team reflects the Chilliwack RCMP’s commitment to stopping impaired driving in our community,” says Inspector Davy Lee of Chilliwack RCMP.

Constable Ryan Feser has served as a General Duty officer in Hope since 2013 and is a member of Alexa’s Team for a second time.

“Cst. Feser is a worthy recipient of an Alexa Team award for his dedication to enforcing the laws that surround impaired driving,” says Staff Sergeant Karol Rehdner of Hope RCMP.

“Through their dedication Constables Sabulsky, Bowness, and Feser are making the roadways of the Upper Fraser Valley a safer place for all to travel. Their work at removing impaired drivers from our streets is commendable and the recognition of that effort is well earned,” said Superintendent Bryon Massie Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment.
