SCMPD honors volunteers at banquet

Posted: Updated:

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Chief Julie Tolbert recognized dozens of dedicated men and women who volunteer their time to the department with a banquet.

In 2013, volunteers served more than 4,700 total hours, working special events, answering phones, assisting at the range and much more.

One of the volunteers being honored explained why this banquet was so special.

"It is very nice," said volunteer Vickie Halperin. "It is very special that they do this for us. We are always happy that we are able to help the police department, and we are very proud of it actually."

The Volunteer of the Year award went to Lou Friedenberg.

Friedenberg also received a 20 Years of Service award and certificates for working more than 500 hours in the Southside Precinct.
