WHEN:   
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 11a.m.

California Highway Patrol

Topanga Division Officers    
    
WHY:    
The 10851 VC award is given to officers who arrest at least 6 suspects in one year who are caught driving stolen vehicles.  10851 VC is the California Vehicle Code section that suspects are booked under when driving a stolen vehicle.  For one officer, this will be his 4th award in over 20 years of service, which shows it is not easy to obtain.

Stolen vehicles are one of the most reported crimes in the Topanga Area.  With the help of these officers, many suspects have been taken off the streets and a reduction in stolen vehicles was noted.  The 10851 VC award is an incentive for officers to produce and make a difference in the community they serve.
