We are excited and privileged as the Roseville Community to host this unique honoring and inspirational “Emmy” style awards celebration. The City Awards Banquet is our community’s “Thank You” gift back to our courageous Fire and Police Departments for their outstanding public service to our community. The festivities will be held in May 2022.
During the pandemic, it's challenges and our horrific Nor Cal fires we believe it is a perfect opportunity for the Roseville Community to unite and honor those who serve as first responders in our fire and police department along with their family. Our hearts run deep with sincere appreciation.
Please consider partnering with us!

Capturing A Selfless Moment In Time
Inside our wooden engraved boxes lies a watch intended to be a tribute by capturing a moment of selfless community service in time. Not just for our award recipient but a timeless legacy to be passed down for future generations. An opportunity to remember and reflect how their loved one selflessly served those in the community during some of their most challenging moments.
Each department’s personnel votes on their peer award nominees with the awards presented by the Police Chief and the Fire Chief. They vote, and we provide the distinguished awards, festivities and announce the winners.
