Scarborough Police Chief Robbie Moulton was honored with a Heroes with Heart award presented by the Trauma Intervention Program (TIP), a volunteer program that provides emotional support services to victims and families during the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event. The annual TIP awards recognize public servants who have gone above and beyond to provide support and assist those in need throughout our communities.
Chief Moulton was recognized at this year’s ceremony on April 12th for his leadership and support for Operation HOPE. Like most great leaders, Chief Moulton often deflects this type of recognition to others. He is quick to praise the project's partners and the dozens of staff members and volunteers that actually administer the program day in and day out. In his weekly Leader article, Chief Michael Thurlow, said "...revolutionary programs like this don’t exist or flourish without a leader like Chief Moulton recognizing a need, allocating resources, advocating tirelessly for it, and building relationships with a wide-range of stakeholders to make it happen."
A native son of Scarborough, Chief Moulton joined the police department in 1977 and quickly rose through the ranks and became police chief in 1999. Operation HOPE is just one of dozens of examples of Chief Moulton’s compassion and care for the citizens and visitors of Scarborough. His peers, coworkers, and public safety family are all very proud of this well deserved recognition as a 2017 TIP Heroes with Heart award recipient.
