COLORADO SPRINGS - The Colorado Spring Police Department took a break from their usual work to recognize hard work in our community on Monday night.
CSPD held its annual awards ceremony to honor officers who have gone beyond the call of duty.
But the event is not only for officers, it's also held to recognize citizens who have done outstanding work in the community.
"It's amazing just the citizens that come to the assistance of the officers on the street or to their fellow man out on the street. And that's a good reason they should be recognized as well," said Sgt. Olav Chaney with the Colorado Springs Police Department.
CSPD held the event at Stargazers Theatre. They handed out numerous awards including civilian of the year.
