SCPD Joins Mayor Hilary Bryant in "Key to the City" Presentation at Plantronics

The Santa Cruz Police Department joined Mayor Hilary Bryant in one of her last official duties as Mayor.  Chief Kevin Vogel, along with Deputy Chiefs Rick Martinez and Steve Clark joined Mayor Bryant at the presentation today. 

Mayor Bryant presented the highly sought after, but seldom awarded “Key to the City” and an official Proclamation to Plantronics President & CEO, Ken Kannappan. 

In the aftermath of the tragic shooting of Sergeant Butch Baker and Detective Elizabeth Butler, Ken and his team at Plantronics went to work hoping to do good for the families and restore a sense of community.  Plantronics raised $50,000 for the Memorial Fund to be distributed to the families of the fallen officers. 

 As I looked around the room filled to capacity with Plantronics’ team members, I saw more than just a company donating an extremely generous amount of money.  I saw a community of caring men and women committed to not only their employer, but also to the Santa Cruz community.  I was humbled by their generosity and show of support. 

Thank You Plantronics!!….we are grateful for your generous donation and proud to have you as a community partner.
