2016 Award Ceremony Recipients

Charleston Police Department’s Annual Awards Program

“In the arena of human life the honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action.”

                                                                                                                        -Aristotle

In a deliberate and humble manner, the Charleston Police Department holds an annual awards ceremony to honor those police officers, civilian employees, and residents who have excelled, demonstrated exceptional service to the community, and contributed substantially in the police department’s quest to achieve its mission.  This is our way to make these exceptional people aware that they are appreciated and serve an important role in our society.  Through the individual and collective efforts of the award recipients, The City of Charleston and its neighborhoods are safer and more livable.

Among the awards presented are the Medal of Valor, for bravery and heroism; the Lifesaving Award; and Employee, Citizen, Volunteer, and Team of the Year.

Through this ceremony, the Department formally, through symbolism and public recognition, acknowledges the outstanding performance and contributions made by each of the award recipients.  Their selection distinguishes them among their peers and says that for this particular period in time they are the “Best of the Best.”  Our admiration and appreciation goes out to each of them for their dedication and commitment to making Charleston the very best it can be. 

Please take a moment and view this presentation.  I know that you will be thankful; as I am that there are men and women in our community who make the choice to serve unselfishly.

Best Regards,

Gregory Mullen
