Councilmember Fimbres congratulations those individuals with TPD who have gone above and beyond the duty, and who are being recognized for their hard work.
Throughout the year, members of the Tucson Police Department consistently go above and beyond in the performance of their duties. As a true testament to their dedication to serving the community, none of them expect to receive any particular accolades as a result of their activities. A few of the hard working employees of the Tucson Police Department rise above even their counterparts, who are consistently doing exemplary work. These individuals truly embody the
Tucson Police Department values of Service Orientation, Excellence, Leadership, Fairness, Teamwork, Integrity, and Personal Responsibility. As such, their efforts will be recognized in an awards ceremony that is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 13, 2012. The Tucson Police Departments Fall Awards Ceremony will be held at the Marriot University Park Hotel located at 880 East 2nd Street from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The guest speakers will be Colonel Edward Maxwell and Chief Master Sergeant Dawna Cnota. Colonel Maxwell is the vice commander, 162nd Fighter Wing, at the Arizona Air National Guard base located at the Tucson International Airport. Chief Master Sergeant Cnota is the Command Chief Master Sergeant for the 355th Fighter Wing at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. The ceremony will honor recipients of the Medal of Distinguished Service and the Unit Medal. This
