Officer, firefighter of the year recognized
Rosemount Police Officer Shawn McMenomy and Firefighter Carl Bourdages have been named the city’s public safety employees of the year.
The awards were announced March 23 during an observance at the Rosemount American Legion Post. Public safety employees of the year are nominated by their colleagues and selected by department managers.
McMenomy, who joined the Rosemount Police Department in 2011, was recognized for his work ethic. A colleague said he “embodies the character and ethics of this department and serves as a model officer for this agency.”
He was recognized as a team player who carries out his duties in a consistent, calm, and humble manner and who understands all aspect of the role of a police officer. Colleagues said that McMenomy understands the importance of building relationships in the community and “always treats everyone he encounters with politeness, respect and dignity.”
Bourdages was recognized as Firefighter of the Year for making himself available to the Rosemount Fire Department at all hours, on top of his commitment to his full-time job. Along with responding to many service calls, he is part of the department’s prevention and education services. He was also part of the team that recently installed 200 smoke detectors obtained through a grant. Bourdages often volunteers to represent the department at block parties and station tours. Bourdages joined the department in 2005.
