The event is open to the public, advanced registration is required.
The ceremony recognizes members of the various public safety departments, as well as every day citizens who have gone above and beyond to ensure the safety of others. Awards for the 2019 Valor Awards are for specific acts that occurred from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.
The beneficiary for 2018 was the Winchester City Sheriff’s Office Foundation and the project the funds will support is a Project Lifesaver System. This is a tracking system which helps people who suffer from Alzheimer’s or autism that causes them to wander. Funding will cover initial startup fees and provide “scholarships” to local families that deal with this situation but cannot afford the cost of the equipment.
