Each year, the Foundation sponsors an annual Awards Banquet, held to recognize and honor the extraordinary work of all the men and women of the Charlottesville Police Department. This formal recognition improves departmental morale and helps challenge department members to perform their duties in a manner above and beyond the normal call of duty. It also serves to remind the community of the dedication of department personnel and the importance of the Department to quality of life in the City of Charlottesville. This year's dinner was held on September 22 at the Omni Hotel. 28 awards were given to Department employees, including 5 Life Saving Awards.

CPD Officer Perspective

I have been a Police Officer for a long time. I have seen both joyful and horrific times thru the years; some dark days & rainy nights I have even asked myself if it was worth it, and did anybody really care? Thanks to the Foundation, I know someone does. Not just funding equipment or training or the many other things that have been done, but by letting us see all of you among us as we work. The outpouring of support from the community itself has demonstrated to us that there are still SO MANY good people in this broken world.
