Employee Commendations

​Special recognition is appropriate when an employee performs in an exemplary manner.  Employees who strive for excellence, commit to continuous improvement, and serve the community to promote positive change should be recognized.  Further, commendations from members of the public and our stakeholders assist the Department in gauging overall community satisfaction with our performance. 

A commendable act by an employee may include, but is not limited to, the following:

1.  Superior handling of a difficult situation;

2.   Demonstrating creativity and innovation to support positive change;

3.  Community involvement (on-duty and off duty);

4.  Other notable performance above and beyond the employee's typical duties.  


Written commendations may be made by members of the public, allied law enforcement, other County departments, Community-based Organizations, or another employee.  

Commendations may be submitted to ProbationMail@SacCounty.gov or by U.S. Mail to Administrative Services at 8745 Folsom Boulevard Sacramento, CA 95826.

All external and internal commendations shall be reviewed and verified.
