2020 RMLEFCU Unparalleled Community Impact Award

It’s time for the third annual RMLEFCU Unparalleled Community Impact Award!

This award is designed to honor a local law enforcement officer who demonstrates outstanding community service consistently. We created this award because we are constantly impressed with the exceptional community service our local law enforcement officers demonstrate and believe their good deeds should be formally recognized and appreciated. We value our members and their noble professions and would like to acknowledge the great community we serve.

In addition to the Unparalleled Community Impact Award, we will be honoring two additional officers with Outstanding Act of Service Awards, which honor individuals who have displayed a recent act of outstanding service. The award recipients will receive recognition in the form of a plaque, a prize, and public recognition at an Unparalleled Community Impact Event held in their honor at their department with a celebratory luncheon for attendees immediately following the event compliments of RMLEFCU.

Littleton Unparalleled Community Impact Award Ceremony

Officer Ford

We had the honor of presenting Officer David Ford, of the Littleton Police Department, with the Unparalleled Community Impact Award. He is currently assigned to the traffic unit as an accident reconstruction expert and traffic enforcement officer.  He also serves on the SWAT Team as a negotiator. He has been the coordinator and organizer for his department’s Shop with a Cop program. This program pairs a child from a less-privileged neighborhood with a police officer and they go shopping for Christmas presents together. Not only does the program provide numerous children with Christmas gifts, but it also fosters positive relationships between the police and the community. In addition to organizing and being a shopper for the event, David solicits community donations. This year is planned to have the best turnout for the event yet, all due to David’s hard work and dedication to the cause.

Littleton Unparalleled Community Impact Award ceremony

The Littleton Unparalleled Community Impact Award ceremony was an emotional one. Officer Ford received the award before his friends, family, and colleagues and gave a heartwarming speech about why he is passionate about the work he does for the community. He explained that his motivation for becoming a police officer stemmed from his respect and admiration for a security guard from his high school that positively impacted him during his youth. His dedication to his work and his community is undeniable, and there is no doubt why he was the recipient of this honorable award.

This past week at the Northglenn Community Center, we had the honor of presenting Northglenn Police Department officers with the Unparalleled Community Impact Award and Outstanding Act of Service Awards.

The awards are meant to honor law enforcement officers who consistently demonstrate outstanding community service. We created this award because we are constantly impressed with the exceptional community service our local law enforcement officers demonstrate and believe their good deeds should be formally recognized and appreciated. We value our members and their noble professions, and we would like to acknowledge the great community we serve.

Officer Brian Kidwell received the Unparalleled Community Impact Award for his leadership and organization of the annual “No Shave Novembeard” for the American Cancer Society. For this event, all staff members are allowed to grow beards and goatees for the month of November in an effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society and build awareness throughout the department.  Officer Kidwell has organized the event, solicited donations and participant gifts, and organized the shave-off with Floyd’s Barbershop in Northglenn. In 2017, he took it to the next level by going three months with no shave to raise even more money.

Northglenn officers Lindsey Queiser, Chad Reffel, Patrick Toelle, and Ibrahim Yasin received the Outstanding Act of Service Awards for their heroic acts involving a roll-over car accident. The team of Queiser, Reffel, Toelle, and Yasin responded to a vehicle rollover accident in March.  When the officers arrived, the vehicle was flipped over and on fire, and it was unknown if the driver was in the vehicle.  With a closer look, they observed the driver was pinned inside the vehicle.  Together, they were able to get the driver out before the entire car was engulfed in flames. The driver made an appearance at the event and personally thanked the officers for saving his life.

After the award ceremony, attendees were invited to enjoy food from the Denver Biscuit Bus compliments of RMLECU.
