The Irving Police Department invites residents and businesses to celebrate the outstanding achievements of its officers at the annual Blue Tie Banquet on March 5 at the Irving Convention Center, 500 W. Las Colinas Blvd.
The event begins at 6 p.m. with a silent auction, followed by dinner at 7 p.m. The awards ceremony will conclude the evening. Among the awards to be presented are Officer of the Year, Supervisor of the Year, New Officer of the Year, Civilian of the Year and Chief’s Unit awards. Proceeds from the silent auction support the Irving Family Advocacy Center. The center provides critical support to families and crime victims throughout the city.
“These brave men and women selflessly serve our city; the banquet is our chance to say thank you,” said Mayor Rick Stopfer.
Those interested in attending may purchase a table or individual seats. Those who are not able to attend can make cash donations. The department also needs auction items. For more information, visit City of Irving's Police Department or email Katherine Roberts.
