DALY CITY POLICE HONORS
2002 'MVP OF THE YEAR'
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
"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
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.

the final selection.
