Officer Roy Gamez and Shannon Revel were recently recognized by the Pleasanton Police Department in its annual program honoring superior performance.
Gamez came to the department in 2005 from the Riverside Sheriff's Department. He currently serves as the school resource officer at Amador Valley and Village high schools, Community Day School and Pleasanton Middle School. Fluent in Spanish, he also helps with Spanish translation requests and is said to log more than 40 hours a week working for the department and school district.
Gamez can be found at school events and has also served as a head coach and assistant coach to the Amador wrestling team.
Revel joined the department three years ago and is a part of numerous public outreach programs, including the curriculum for the Teen Academy, Pleasanton's National Night Out activities and crime prevention. She also regularly speaks to the public about patrol functions, crime prevention, youth and other issues.
Employees nominated peers for their contributions, which were reviewed by a committee. The final selections were made by Police Chief Michael Fraser.
