It is that time of year again where The Lions Club of the City of Adelaide is proud to sponsor the ‘South Australian Citizen’s Award’, and to present it with the South Australia Police to the person who assists police in the their duties in the community.
The award consists of an individual shield, a perpetual shield, and a framed citation outlining the basis for the nomination made by a police officer.
Nominations are submitted by Local Service Areas, branches and sections of the South Australia Police from across the State of South Australia. Nominations are based on letters and Certificates of Appreciation which may have been presented to members of the public in recognition of assistance given to SAPOL in the performance of police duties during the past twelve months. The nominations were made and then judged by the award selection panel. The panel consists of members from The Lions Club of the City of Adelaide and senior members of SAPOL, with the Police Commissioner, Grant Stevens, ratifying the successful nomination.
It is with great pleasure that we officially announce that the recipient of the South Australian Citizen’s Award for 2019 is Mr Shawn Hicks, in recognition of his ongoing commitment to assist South Australian Police.
On Thursday, 21st of November 2019, a small presentation and morning tea were held at SA Police Head Quarters to recognise and present Shawn Hicks with the award. We thank Shawn for his time, dedication and support.
