The City of Palm Springs paid tribute to its hard working police and firefighters at the 4th Annual City of Palm Springs Police and Fire Appreciation Luncheon held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, on May 7. The luncheon was hosted by CBS Local 2's Patrick Evans and highlighted the tremendous accomplishments of the city's hard working police and fire departments for 2014, which also featured updates from Police Chief Al Franz and Interim Fire Chief Blake Goetz.
Also honored at the luncheon was Patty Delgado Service, owner of Las Casuelas Terraza in downtown Palm Springs, with the prestigious Richard M. Milanovich Community Leadership Award. Delgado Service, a graduate of Palm Springs High School, is a long-time supporter of the City of Palm Springs and its public safety officers.
