Ken James, Emeryville police chief since July 1998, has been honored with the California Police Chiefs Association’s most prestigious award.
James, 60, a 37-year veteran of the department, was presented the Joe Malloy Award Wednesday at the association’s 35th annual training symposium installation banquet in Sacramento.
A statement released by the CPCA said James was honored for his “dedication and service to law enforcement” and the association.
The award, named in honor of deceased Anaheim police Chief Joe Malloy, embodies the characteristics he represented, including “professionalism, leadership, energy, and commitment to the mission of the association,” said CPCA president, Irvine police Chief Dave Maggard, in the statement. | ContraCostaTimes.com »
