VIPS Volunteer of the Year 2012
On August 16, 2012, the James City County Police Department recognized Charlie and Kathi Brewster for their outstanding volunteer service in VIPS. Their dedication to the program has been extensive and ongoing. They stepped in and took over the VIPS coordinator position when the void needed to be filled. In addition to the many hours of service at the front desk of the new Law Enforcement Center they are continually helping out at Community Service Unit events. Charlie and Kathi also routinely will step up to cover an event where VIPS are needed if no one else has signed up to work. It is that committed dedication and the will to do whatever is necessary to insure coverage wherever needed that make Charlie and Kathi such a valuable asset to the Police department. Charlie and Kathi also keep track of all events and which volunteers have signed up to work them. They keep track of all the V.I.P.S. hours worked each month and year and report those figures to us. The Police department couldn’t ask for a finer couple to represent the James City County Police Department as volunteers.
