The Boise Police Department held an Awards Ceremony today to honor several BPD employees for their service to our community. Mayor Lauren McLean, Chief Ron Winegar and the rest of the Boise Police Department Command Staff presented the awards and congratulated everyone today for their work. Some of the awards presented include the Medal of Valor, Purple Heart, Lifesaving, Meritorious Action and Leadership Commendations.
“Police officers exist to protect and serve as guardians of our community. Today we gathered to celebrate and reward some of the men and women of BPD who have done great work over the past couple of years,” said Chief Ron Winegar. “We ask our department members to be many things to many people, sometimes many things all at once. Today we were able to share some of their stories and accomplishments with their families, friends and community members.”
