On the evening of Thursday, November 7th, The Placer County Law Enforcement Agencies Executive Council (commonly referred to as P.L.E.A.) sponsored and coordinated the 25th annual Placer County Law Enforcement Honors and Awards Ceremony, held at Destiny Church in Rocklin.
The Honors and Awards event each year recognizes and honors law enforcement acts that were above and beyond the call of duty in Placer County.
The Keynote Speaker was Chief Bernard Melekian, who has nearly 40-years law enforcement experience, has a Doctorate in Policy, Planning and Development, is a former Medal of Valor and Medal of Courage recipient and most recently retired as Director of the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing, a position appointed by U.S. Attorney Eric Holder.
