Why Your Department Should Participate This annual Challenge is an exceptional tool that allows your agency to take a hard look at their department’s effectiveness. Documenting traffic safety efforts can help provide accountability and prove the value of a strong traffic safety program, which can be beneficial during budget negotiations. Participating in the Challenge facilitates documentation of your agency’s effectiveness that can be used in future grant proposals. To showcase your agency’s efforts, category winners may choose to have their awards presented in front of their City Council or Board of Supervisors. Participating in this competition can bring a great deal of positive attention to your agency and improve its standing within the community. 2014 Award Winners COMMISSIONER’S AWARD Novato Police Department MILITARY POLICE Fort Irwin Military Police . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .1st MUNICIPAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES 1-75 Sworn Officers Novato Police Department . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .1st Burlingame Police Department . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2nd Hollister Police Department . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3rd SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT Lathrop Police Services/ San Joaquin County Police . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .1st MUNICIPAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES 76-150 Sworn Officers Citrus Heights Police Department . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .1st Visalia Police Department . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2nd South San Francisco Police Department. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3rd MUNICIPAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES 150+ Sworn Officers Santa Rosa Police Department . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
