On Thursday, May 28, 2009, at 6:30 p.m., the Sacramento Police Foundation presents the Sacramento Police Department's 2009 Commendation Awards Dinner and Ceremony at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento (1230 J Street).  This year we will be honoring 26 individuals.

Personnel receiving awards have exhibited bravery above and beyond that which is expected, displayed courage involving personal hazard, were directly responsible for saving a human life during a grave situation or performed effective, efficient, and valuable service to the Sacramento Police Department.

The Sacramento Police Department is proud to recognize its employees who have gone above and beyond their duties in serving our community.
