roseburg optimist club honors police department's efforts (Photo) - 10/14/21

ROSEBURG, OR – The Roseburg Optimist Club on Thursday, Oct. 14, recognized the Roseburg Police Department’s efforts to protect and safeguard lives and property.

On Thursday, Oct. 14, 2021, Roseburg Optimist Club President Peter Sudduth visited the Roseburg Public Safety Center and presented a plaque to the Roseburg Police Department that reads:

“In recognition and appreciation for the actions, activities and service by the entirety of your department in an unprecedented and uncertain time in Douglas County. We honor your efforts in safeguarding lives and property while providing a safe and healthy community for all to visit, live and thrive in.”

For the past 45 years, the Roseburg Optimist Club has honored local law enforcement with an annual Respect for Law banquet held every February. Normally, local agencies choose a law enforcement employee of the year for special recognition at this banquet.

Due to the pandemic, the 2021 banquet was cancelled.

Roseburg Police Chief Gary Klopfenstein thanked the club for the plaque and recognition.

“The Roseburg Optimist Club unwaveringly supports local Law Enforcement, and we look forward to being able to attend their banquet again, hopefully next February,” Chief Klopfenstein said.
