Receiving the Crystal Angel Award for Community Service will be Sergeant Beatrice Yearwood from Hollywood Community Police Station and Sergeant Victor Dennis from Harbor Community Police Station.

The Foundation was established in 1998 to raise monies to fund urgently needed police programs and safety equipment, not covered by the City budget. Since its inception in 1998, the Foundation has purchased and distributed Law Enforcement Trauma Shooting Kits to every one of the nearly 9,000 uniformed members of the Department. Additionally, the Foundation has purchased 14 bomb blankets to ensure the safety of the bomb squad during threat situations, ballistic shields used during the 2000 Democratic Convention, and "Hot Dog" temperature monitors for K-9 vehicles.

The media is cordially invited to attend and cover the event. Available for filming and information will be the LAPD’s SWAT, K-9 and Bomb Squads. Also available for viewing will be the LAPD "Protect and Serve" photo archive.
