Honored by:  Orange Police Department

Cause Area:   Law Enforcement

Rick has been a member of the Orange Police Department since September 2015 and is an invaluable member of our department.  Rick currently helps with the department’s Fleet Services and Field Patrol Services.  He is described by his peers as someone who is always helpful, friendly and a team player.

Rick is always eager to assist and help with anything needed.  His willingness to help wherever needed is evident.  He initially began as part of the Fleet team working one day a week, but in time there was a need to help cover two additional days as part of the Field Patrol team.  Rick without hesitation offered to jump in and cover the additional two days, working a total of three days per week when the minimum requirement is one day a week.  Rick is also a great help at National Night Out where he assists with displaying the department’s fleet vehicles and helps take pictures of children inside the vehicles.

The Orange Police Department would like to recognize and thank Rick for all his hard work and dedication!
