Funds from this year’s Valor Awards event will go to the Frederick County/Winchester Law Enforcement Foundation to be used to benefit community events coordinated by the Winchester Police Department the purpose of which is to increase transparency, build relationships, and educate the public on law enforcement and trends that may affect them. Some of these events include community fairs, Cookies with Cops, Coloring with Cops, the North End Summer Kickoff, and the Junior Academy. The department also creates packets of information to provide education and information to the community regarding bike safety, bullying, self-defense, child safety seat installations, elder abuse, and fraud alerts.
