Awards to local police officers during 2010 included the Stanislaus Civitan Club award for Officer of the Year to Deputy Donald Worsham, the Riverbank Police Services year-end report noted.

He was nominated for outstanding service by his peers based upon his hard work and dedication to the community, said the report, adding he "illustrates the epitome of a public servant, putting others first and placing service above self."

Deputy Worsham is a 20-year veteran with the Sheriff's Department, serves as a traffic officer for the City of Riverbank.

This past year, he participated in several community functions where he spoke to schoolchildren on pedestrian safety.

During 2010, Traffic Deputies Gary Vernon and Mike Glinskas also received Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) awards for their outstanding work in driving under the influence (DUI) enforcement.

They were honored at the annual MADD awards banquet in Sacramento.
