WHEN: Saturday, May 15th, 2010, (National Peace Officers Day)

The community recognition dinner is designed to celebrate national police week and the efforts of our police officers citizens and local businesses working hard to keep Milton safe. The Milton Police Department annual awards ceremony for police officers and citizens will also take place after the dinner. Several officers and civilian staff will be recognized for their work. We are also recognizing local citizens and businesses that have assisted us in our mission of Keeping Milton Safe. They are being recognized with what are known as “Community Partner Awards”. The partnerships that our citizens and businesses have with the police department help maintain our quality of life in Milton, and we felt some of these continued efforts are worthy of recognition.

The dinner is also being used as a fundraiser for the Milton PD’s crime prevention fund and promotes local business in Milton as a silent auction highlighting many Milton businesses is being held in conjunction with the event. Many City of Milton businesses have donated gift certificates and other items of value that will be auctioned off after the awards ceremony. All proceeds from the dinner and the silent auction support our crime prevention fund.

Tickets are $25, and only 150 tickets to the event will be sold. If you are interested in purchasing tickets or donating an item for the silent auction please contact Support Services Manager Becky Sexe at 608-868-6910 ext. 22 or via e-mail at
