Seattle Police Foundation to honor those who serve to protect

Tonight at the downtown Sheraton, the Seattle Police Foundation will be honoring the Seattle Police Department and their officers, and more specifically, the officers who go above and beyond in performing their duties (recipient list below). 

This evening will also be marked by the 135th Anniversary of the Seattle Police Department and the 10th Anniversary of the Seattle Police Foundation.  Community members from across the Puget Sound will gather to celebrate and honor the award winning officers.  Annually the Seattle Police Foundation, with the support of community leaders, honors those who serve our community.  As the Foundation celebrates its 10th Anniversary, we cannot forget the actions that brought us together and formed what would become the Seattle Police Foundation. 

Following the tragic events of 9/11, united by a desire to publicly support Seattle’s law enforcement professionals, a group of distinguished leaders from Seattle’s business, civic, religious and academic communities identified a need to support the brave men and women who serve and protect our community, thus launching the independent, non-profit organization that would become the Seattle Police Foundation in January of 2002.

The Seattle Police Foundation (SPF) was founded to assist the police department in enhancing its relationship with the community, improve officer training, recognize exceptional officers, detectives and civilian employees, provide equipment and technology to ensure officers’ safety and enhance the service they provide our community every day.

This banquet allows the Seattle Police Foundation to help fulfill its mission and recognize the officers who serve and protect with distinction.  The Seattle Police Foundation would also like to thank our community leaders and corporate sponsors in their support. 

Congratulations to the winners!
