Daly City - Officer Michael Price was presented the "Most Valuable Police Officer Of the Year" award by Police Chief Gary McLane last March 24th in front of a packed Council Chambers.
"This award is particularly meaningful because the votes came from the Officer's peers, those he works with every day. It reflects their value system. Officer Price was selected based upon his work ethic, job knowledge, mentoring ability and leadership skills, often leading by example," Chief McLane informed the Mayor and Councilmembers at the onset of the regularly scheduled city council meeting.

Officer Price joined the Daly City Police Department on September 2000. He is member of the SWAT team and a Chemical Agent Instructor. He also serves on San Mateo County's Weapons of Mass Destruction Task Force and a Physical Fitness Instructor at the South Bay Regional Police Academy.

While serving the Broadmoor Police Department from 1994 to 1998, Officer Price was named the 1997 Officer of the Year.

Before joining DCPD, he was with the Colma Police Department from 1998 to 2000.
A longtime resident of South San Francisco, Officer Price graduated from El Camino High School and Skyline College. He also attended Butte Law Enforcement Academy. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from California State University, Hayward in 1995.

Each year, the seven police teams nominate one deserving officer. The names of the nominees are submitted to the Board of Directors of the Police Officers Association (POA), who makes the final selection.
