Laurie Hawkins Scholarship

In 2009, the Ontario Women in Law Enforcement implemented a scholarship fund in the memory of Laurie Hawkins. Constable Hawkins was a 20 year veteran with the Ontario Provincial Police. During her career, Laurie was recognized for her dedication to her community, and in 2006 received the OWLE Award for Community Service. On December 1st 2008, Laurie, her husband and their two children were found deceased from carbon monoxide poisoning in their Woodstock home. We will continue to honour the memory of Constable Laurie Hawkins through the dedicated scholarship fund which is presented at the Annual OWLE Awards Banquet.
