The Coral Springs Police Department was recently awarded the 2010 Outstanding Achievement in Law Enforcement Volunteer Programs Award. Coral Springs was one of three agencies to receive the award out of a total of 45 agencies submitting applications.
The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) sponsor this annual award to recognize law enforcement agencies that have developed creative and effective volunteer programs. The award recognizes agencies that most exemplify the goals, concepts, and spirit of volunteerism in action.
Past winners include Mesa, Arizona and San Antonio, Texas, which are both substantially larger cities than Coral Springs.
“Our volunteers and our program coordinator, Kim Sanecki, really do a fantastic job and it’s not just in the Police Department,” Police Chief Duncan Foster said. “Our City couldn't provide the level of service we do without our volunteers.”
The 2010 Outstanding Achievement in Law Enforcement Volunteer Programs Award will be presented at the 117th annual IACP Conference in Orlando, Florida in October 2010.
