Congrats to Chris Masuzumi for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Huntington Beach Police Department
Honoree Category: Law Enforcement
Why Nominated: Chris Masuzumi is a relatively new member of the HBPD RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program); she joined our program in 2013 and during this time has quickly gained the respect of the other RSVP’s and the Huntington Beach Police Department personnel.
Chris Masuzumi was selected because of what her peers have said. Chris is a true team player and volunteers to help whenever and where ever she sees a need or is request to assist. Chris came to HBPD and our RSVP program with a law enforcement background which has been a great asset, both to the RSVP’s and our Department.
In addition to conducting Vacation House Checks, removing illegally posted signs throughout the City, patrolling the parks, and conducting RD (Reporting District) checks, she also, conducts Police Department tours, assists in preparing bicycles for auction, and recovers found, property picked up at the beach, and helps log it in to our property room.
Chris is a quiet person that stands out in a crowd because of her positive attitude and cheerful personality. You never hear her speak negatively about a program, project, or individual which is why she is such a wonderful person to work with. These same traits make others want to be more involved, so she is a good motivator too. Chris will often assist at community events, with Curb Crime, at our pier, or front counter. She is a dedicated, knowledgeable, loyal, warm and friendly person and brings many assets to the RSVP program and our Department. It is easy to understand why she was selected as one of the Spirit Volunteers of the Year.
The Huntington Beach Police Department is proud to have her as a member of our organization; we and the community members thank her for her service.
