The City of Cambridge showed its appreciation to the members of the Cambridge Police Auxiliary by holding a banquet in their honor at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge.
Over 80 people were in attendance to honor the volunteer efforts of the Auxiliary Police; including Auxiliary members, their families and friends, members of the Cambridge Police Department, Mayor Henrietta Davis, and other City officials.
Commissioner Robert C. Haas of the Cambridge Police Department welcomed those in attendance and addressed the Auxiliary members, saying, “Your service is invaluable to us and we want to show you our appreciation for all that you do for our City.”
“It’s a pleasure to be able to celebrate and honor your service to our City,” Mayor Henrietta Davis said. “The Auxiliary Police play a vital role in making sure Cambridge is a fun place to live, providing the needed support at City celebrations and events. We are lucky to have such a talented and dedicated group.”
Before presenting gifts to all of the members of the Auxiliary Police for their volunteer efforts, Mayor Davis, Commissioner Haas, Lieutenant James DeFrancesco and Superintendent Jack Graham of the Cambridge Police Auxiliary presented the 2012 Cambridge Auxiliary Police Officer of the Year Award to Jeffrey Forbes in recognition of his outstanding individual accomplishments and dedication to duty.
