BHPD Reserve Officers Receive Service Award

Donald Hecht and Michael Schwab have together devoted more than 65 years of public service to the Beverly Hills community.

Beverly Hills Police Department reserve officers Donald Hecht and Michael Schwab were honored Saturday at the 2012 Jack Webb Awards for their continuing service and dedication to law enforcement.

The Los Angeles Police Museum event was held at the Beverly Hilton. The duo's awards were presented by BHPD Chief David Snowden, who is on the museum's board of directors.

Hecht and Schwab, both longtime residents of Beverly Hills, have together devoted more than 65 years of public service to the community.

Hecht has served as a representative with the Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County and can be seen hitting the streets weekly on patrols. He is one of only a few designated Level 1 reserve officers in the state with full-time peace officer powers.

Schwab had a hand in the planning process of the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program (D.A.R.E.) some 30 years ago when the program was starting out in L.A. County. His efforts helped to launch the program with national recognition.

Both Hecht and Schwab are highly respected members of the BHPD who work side by side with full-time personnel.

Congratulations to Donald Hecht and Michael Schwab!
