PD Receives Two Awards from CA Highway Patrol
Congratulations and thank you!
Congratulations to the Burlingame Police Department and specifically, Sergeant Jim Ford, Corporal Michael Martyn and Officer Garrett Pene who were awarded two awards from the California Highway Patrol during Monday's City Council meeting.
The Burlingame Police Department received a 2nd place award for its efforts in traffic safety under the California Law Enforcement Challenge. In addition, the Department received a Special Award for its efforts in speed awareness.
The California Law Enforcement Challenge is modeled after the International Association of Chiefs of Police National Law Enforcement Challenge. In this competition among similarly sized law enforcement agencies, police departments throughout California compete for recognition of their traffic safety programs. The competition focuses on an agency's efforts in occupant protection, impaired driving, and speed awareness, as well as a traffic safety issues unique to the agency.
Congratulations to our Police Department and the Traffic Division for their efforts in traffic safety, and congratulations to all Burlingame Officers who participated in our county S.T.E.P. deployments and DUI saturation patrols and checkpoints. Your efforts make a difference in our community by saving lives and reducing injuries and fatal collisions.
