[ARCHIVED] Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association Receives Top State Award

On July 26, 2013, the Kerrville Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association (KCPAAA) was awarded the prestigious Alumni Association of the Year award by the Texas Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association Board of Directors. The award was presented at the annual State Citizen Police Academy & Law Enforcement Training Conference, held in Arlington, Texas, July 24-27.

The KCPAAA was recognized among the 75 participating state-wide alumni associations for having the most advanced and productive programs to enhance the citizen-police partnership, as measured by both actions and deeds during 2012-2013.

KCPAAA President Bill Cafferty, along with Community Services Officer Paul Gonzales and seven KCPAAA members were present at the conference awards banquet to accept the award from the state board in front of 300 plus attendees. “This is an overwhelming honor. I accept it on behalf of the KCPAAA and its members, all of whom are dedicated in their support of the Kerrville Police Department and the Kerrville community.” said Bill, when accepting the award.

The KCPAAA was created in 2006 and has grown from a very small cadre to nearly 90 members. KCPAAA volunteers are committed to making a positive difference in the Kerrville community by improving quality of life through safety & special assistance programs, and by supporting and promoting the mission of the Kerrville Police Department.

Chief John M. Young, Jr., said, “We are extremely proud of the alumni association and their contributions to the department and the city. We have accomplished a significant number of activities with their assistance. They are a force multiplier that allows us to deliver quality service to our community.”
