Z Man Award
Mark Y. Zylawy, “Z Man” a highly regarded Portland police officer, died January 27, 2008 in a tragic and untimely accident at the age of 40. He worked as a district officer in Northeast Portland for 17 years with passion, dedication and enthusiasm throughout his career.
In memory of Mark and what he stood for in regards to Emergency Vehicle Operations Training, ALERT International has set up the ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. This award is presented on an annual basis for the best innovative idea in Police Driver Training in the past year. We give out this award at our annual conference on the last night at our banquet. Do you know of a training unit or an individual that has made an impact on EVOC? It’s not too early to start thinking about someone to nominate. Please nominate your submissions today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bruce Cabral Scholarship Raffle
As many of you know we have a raffle the last night of the conference to help fund the Bruce Cabral Scholarship. In past years, we had many great items including TV’s, Yeti Coolers, knives, and many high dollar items from Cabela’s outdoors and other retailers. So we have lots of items to raffle off, we like to have everyone attending the conference bring something from their agency to contribute to the raffle.
Please as you are preparing to attend this year start gathering coins, shirts, or anything of interest to a police officer or trainer to bring to the conference. The more items we have the more successful the raffle will be!
Please continue to stay safe and healthy and looking forward to seeing everyone in Tulsa!
