The Pleasanton Police Department has named Carole Salerno as its 2010 Volunteer of the year.
Salerno lives in Pleasanton but works in San
Francisco and still managed to put in 256 volunteer hours over the last year and nearly 1,400 hours in the last four years. She works nights and weekends helping local police out with community events and crime analysis.
She has also attended background investigation training and now conducts background checks of other potential volunteers with the Pleasanton Police VIP (Volunteers in Police Services) program.
Volunteers are recognized during National Volunteer Week to thank volunteers and reserve officers for the thousands of hours of service they donate to the police department and the City of Pleasanton each year.
