MCAO receives awards for 3 county programs

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office received three National Association of Counties Achievement Awards for its Friday Night Football Patrol, Safe Kids Summer and the “Don’t Leave Me Behind” Vehicular Heatstroke Campaign community education programs.

Recent NACo Achievement Awards were granted in the Civic Education and Public Information category for the 2015 calendar year. Awards were created to recognize innovative county government programs. The MCAO earned 66 NACo Awards since 1990 with 12 under County Attorney Bill Montgomery, according to a press release.

“Public safety is of paramount importance to me and to my office. If we can use our time and resources as an organization to go out in the community and influence a kid to not try drugs, or help a little one know what to do in an emergency; if we put that message into someone’s mind not to leave their child in a parked car, then we have made a difference,” said Mr. Montgomery in a prepared statement. “It is an honor to be recognized for these efforts, and these programs and others like them will continue.”
