She has also been heavily involved with the Amherstburg police bicycle rodeo, an event that is done in partnership with the Rotary Club.

“I am very honoured to be recognized by the police chief and the Amherstburg Police Service,” said Mangoff-Lazanja. “We’ve had a great partnership over the last few years. It’s just continued to grow.”

Noting she can’t accomplish anything without the support of the people around her, Mangoff-Lazanja said she is willing to continue to help in any way she can. She compared the Amherstburg Police Service to the Rotary Club in that both organizations serve the community and also care about the town.


The second Chief’s Award of Excellence went to Lena Mangoff-Lazanja. Mangoff-Lazanja “exemplifies community involvement” according to her award presentation with her involvement including positions with the Amherstburg Soccer Club, Amherstburg Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Amherstburg and Amherstburg Community Services.
