Mayor Lane & City Council Present Proclamation to SCPD

Mayor Don Lane, speaking on behalf of the Santa Cruz City Council recognized the Santa Cruz Police Department in honor of Police Appreciation Week at today’s council meeting.
About National Police Week
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. This week is set to honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year.
Deputy Chief Rick Martinez received a proclamation for SCPD’s hard work in our community.

Mayor Don Lane commended SCPD's ongoing good work in partnership with city.  The proclamation demonstrates that local law enforcement is honored and respected in our community.  

Thank you Mayor Lane and City Council. It is an honor to serve and protect this fine community.
