FAIRFIELD — They were honored Monday at City Hall with scholarships from the Solano County Bar Association and the Fairfield Kiwanis Club – and Police Chief Walt Tibbet presented black and white Police Activities League sashes for their community service.

“This is the future of Fairfield,” Police Capt. Darrin Moody said at the ceremony at City Hall.

The Sash Ceremony is a special event to recognize outstanding PAL Members who have graduated from high school and made education and community service a top priority in their live, the police department said.

Christian Cabos, Miguel Cervantes, Adrian Ortega, Bernardo Ortega and Vereniz Ortiz were winners of scholarships from the Fairfield Kiwanis.

Scholarships from the bar association were presented to Andrew Baldwin, Daraja Carroll, Miguel Cervantes, Adrian Ortega, Bernardo Ortega, Vereniz Oritz and Adrian Ponce.

Recipients of the PAL sash for 2014 were Dimitrius Bailey, Andrew Baldwin, Raimauri Barron, Daraja Carroll, Miguel Cervantes, Cristian Cobos and Dominick Fowler. Sean Gray, Elijah Hall, Demoriaye Hart-Spikes, Adrian Hernandez, Tevine Lewis, Jarlee Momoh, Jordan Moss, Adrian Ortega and Bernardo Ortega also received the black and white PAL sash.

The sash went to Vereniz Ortiz, Hector Reynoso, Jasmine Rodriguez, Erwin Silva, Jermaine Tilson and Lexi Williams as well.

Sgt. Kevin Carella of the Fairfield Police Department thanked Chick-fil-A for its support of the Police Activities League. Chick-fil-A delivered 50 sandwiches twice a month to the PAL Center.

“They not only do this,” the sergeant said, “they also donate to our PAL dinner every year.”

“They’re fully committed to PAL,” Carella said.

    To all the GREAT PAL kids…some of the best lessons in life teach us what not to do. Don't ever be jealous of people trying to make something of their life, don't ever be a JazzAzz. You chose PAL…you are making something of your life. To JazzAzz…be "part of the solution," not part of the problem!

    I applaud the ones involved with PAL, making something of their lives. I do not applaud the scumbag attorneys consistently trying to get off the Perps that DON'T. Once all us, "Law abiding Citizens, "are given our Constitutional rights to carry a concealed weapon with a permit, by the Supreme Court,we'll take care of those!!!!
