Posted on 02/10/2020

The City’s Police Chaplain and three Citizen Patrol members were named recipients of the esteemed President’s Volunteer Service Award at the council meeting on January 28, 2020

In 2003, the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President’s Volunteer Service Award to recognize individuals whose service positively impacts communities and inspires those around them to take action too.

The City of Mill Creek would like to recognize and thank Police Chaplain Nick Lewis and three Citizen Patrol members for their tireless dedication and commitment to our community in 2019:

·         Sally Dagan, Silver Award, 431 hours of service

·         George DeWitt, Silver Award, 378 hours of service

·         Barb Heidel, Silver Award, 299 hours of service

·         Nick Lewis, Bronze Award, 146 hours of service

Council also recognized City residents Tracy Simplot and Jennifer Hoaglan as the two newest additions to the Mill Creek Citizen Patrol. These two women have been active volunteers within Mill Creek’s Police Department and successfully completed the department’s Citizen Academy. Acting Chief of Police Scott Eastman led them through the Citizen Patrol Oath of Honor.

The Citizen Patrol provides our City’s police department with well-trained dedicated volunteers in a partnership that promotes a strong and safe community.

The addition of Simplot and Hoaglan brings Citizen Patrol membership to a total of seven active members.

Over the last several years Citizen Patrol members have made community outreach their primary goal and have successfully supported the implementation of community events.
