Everyone enjoys receiving recognition for effort and accomplishment. Commendations, either verbal or written, are one of the best ways to let someone know that you appreciate his/her work. You can send a commendation for an employee of the University of Washington Police Department to our Chief of Police. You may also advise the employee's supervisor. Your comments can be made in person, by telephone or by contacting us via mail or email.
A commendation may address any action that you deem noteworthy on the part of a UWPD employee. This may range from the display of unusual courtesy or compassion to significant life-saving measures or heroic acts. We are interested in hearing about your observations of any commendable act or behavior.
We formally document all commendations and notify the involved employees. A commendation takes only a few minutes to write or communicate and lets the personnel of the University of Washington Police Department know their efforts are noticed and appreciated by the community we serve.
