The Citrus Heights Police Department handed out awards, made promotions, and welcomed more than a dozen new officers to its team last week, during an annual Swearing-In and Awards Ceremony at the Community Center.
“Our men and women work extremely hard, day in and day out, 24/7, to ensure our community is safe,” said Sergeant Michael Wells in a news release, commenting that the ceremony is “just one way” to show the Department’s appreciation for their work.
In addition to the new officers being sworn in and taking their oath of office, Police Chief Christopher Boyd also promoted a lieutenant and two sergeants during the ceremony. Members of the support staff were honored as well, including a code enforcement officer, community service officers, program assistants, volunteers, and explorers, according to the news release.
Other awards were also given to members of the police department and community, highlighting noteworthy efforts which included two life-saving awards, exceptional service, and team achievement.
The event, held last Thursday, was attended by city council members, as well as representatives from various law enforcement agencies and members of the public.
CHPD says the ceremony is designed to appreciate “hard work, sacrifice, and dedication” of its team, honoring their efforts to make Citrus Heights “a better place.”
The 9th annual ceremony has been held each year since the City formed its own police department in 2006.
