It's easy to find bad news without even looking for it, but there is also good news all around us, if we have the eyes to see it. The Charlottesville Police Foundation (CPF) launched a new "Officer of the Month" initiative in 2019 to help surface these good stories. We recognize members of the Charlottesville Police Department (CPD) who go "Beyond the Call" to serve our community, and then we share these stories with the public. Officers receive recognition from their superiors, a celebratory lunch, and a monetary "thank you" gift. Your donations for this progam go directly to the officers as they are awarded this special honor.
