Sharron Kanter has been selected for the national Daily Points of Light Award for 17 March 2008. Ms. Kanter has been recognized for twofold volunteer efforts for the City of Lakewood.
Ms. Kanter volunteers in the Lakewood Police Department’s Crime Analysis Unit. Without her assistance the unit could not provide the weekly reports and information the CAU issues. She is the recipient of both the Police Chief’s Citizen Commendation and the Police Chief’s Citation. She has recently taken on the additional assignment of performing Criminal History Checks on applicants for police department volunteer positions. Sharron has provided over 2,500 hours of volunteer service to the departments since it was created three years ago.
Sharron has also been the co-coordinator for Lakewood’s annual Night Out Against Crime observances for the last ten years. When she took on the program, there were about six Lakewood NNO events with just a few hundred participants. Last year Lakewood had 48 NNO events with over 4,000 participants.
