Two SCPD Officers to Receive Red Cross Hero Award Tomorrow

Two Santa Cruz Police Department officers will be honored by the Santa Cruz County chapter of the American Red Cross at the sixth annual Heroes Breakfast on May 18 at Seascape Golf Club in Aptos. The Department is quite honored to have two of its own receive this prestigious recognition.

Officer Matt Mulvihill will receive the Rescue Professional Hero award for skillfully working with Santa Cruz Firefighters to rescue a woman attempting to jump from a six-story building.

Officer Joe Hernandez will receive Workplace Hero award for his significant work in early youth intervention and prevention of gang violence.

We are extremely proud of the men and women of our department and thank the American Red Cross for their support of our agency!
