Mayor Swearengin Congratulates Chief Dyer For Receiving Cal Chiefs Highest Award

Mayor Ashley Swearengin today congratulated Police Chief Jerry Dyer for receiving the California Police Chiefs Association’s most prestigious honor, the Joe Molloy Award.

“Chief Dyer has established himself as a statewide leader in issues that are important to the law enforcement community,” Mayor Swearengin said. “His passion for and commitment to public safety are well known to Fresno residents. The recognition of his dedication to law enforcement excellence by his peers across the state is well deserved.”

Chief Dyer was honored for his leadership, energy and commitment to the mission of the California Police Chiefs Association. He served as president of the association in 2008 and also has served on the association’s executive board. The award is presented in honor of the late Chief Joe Molloy of Anaheim.

In presenting the award, CPCA President Susan Manheimer said Chief Dyer has emerged as a leader on law enforcement issues and is a subject matter expert on prison and parole reform issues and their effects on local law enforcement and public safety.

Chief Dyer received the award at CPCA’s installation banquet in Anaheim on March 2.

The California Police Chiefs Association represents the state’s municipal police chiefs, whose agencies protect more than 79 percent of the citizens of California.
