The Community Service Medal is awarded to a member of the department that demonstrates an extraordinary commitment to the community they serve, such as significant involvement in a community program that is outside of the scope of their employment.
The award is issued in the form of a medal that can be worn on the class a dress uniform, a ribbon bar that can be worn on the everyday class b patrol uniform and a letter of authenticity from the Chief of Police.
This year, the Community Service Medal is awarded to Sgt. Joe Hornbeck in recognition of his involvement with the Shared Table program. Sgt. Hornbeck has not only participated in this program in 2016, but has now organized an event in June of this year in which the police department will sponsor a Shared Table event.
