On 5-09-13, the CPD held its first annual awards banquet. A committee of Sgts. and Officers researched the
records of current officers, some in excess of 25 years in length. The committee recommended awards from life saving events, to programs and efforts individual officers have contributed to the success of the department, to service length awards. Needless to say, the awards were given for collective years of an officers career. Officers will be authorized to wear ribbons o their uniforms.
