Congratulations to NIS’ own Mike Smith for receiving the “Volunteer of the Year” award from the Beaverton Police Department.
In 2013, the department had an active roster of 75 volunteers who donated more than 6,966 hours – the equivalent of more than three full-time employees. The value of the hours donated by police volunteers is estimated at $154,227. Volunteers help in many ways including: data entry, department tours, crime prevention on education, special projects, and community events. Their contributions are instrumental in helping the department sustain its level of service with programs such as Homesafe, Peer Court, Speed Monitoring Awareness Response Trailer (SMART), Phantom Vehicle, Exclusion Trespass Agreements, and Document Shredding events.
NIS is proud of Mike’s contributions and dedication to the community!
