CSPD Annual Awards Ceremony

Friday, January 3, 2014, 3:30 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]


The Colorado Springs Police Department and members of the community will be celebrating the CSPD Annual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, January 7th, 2014 at 6:00 PM.  To be held at the Stargazers Theatre & Event Center located at 10 South Parkside Drive, this event promises to be uplifting and inspiring. 


The ceremony will recognize our Civilian Employee of the Year, followed by 20 citizens who have assisted in the prevention of a crime, apprehension of a suspect or rendered outstanding service to our department. Additionally, this award extends appreciation to citizens who have performed heroic acts at the risk of danger to themselves.


The remaining presentations include eight {8} Department Commendations, two {2} Lifesaving Awards and three [3] Ron Gibson Excellence in Ethics awards.  The Department Commendation reflects an outstanding act or achievement which brings credit to the department involving performance beyond the employee’s normal assignment.  The Life Saving Award is given to any Police Department member for saving a human life.  Although the victim may have died later, the actions prolonged life and permitted the victim to be treated by medical personnel.  The Ron Gibson Excellence in Ethics
