BHPD reserve officers Donald Hecht and Michael Schwab.
Museum's Board of Directors, BHPD Police Chief David Snowden, presented Hecht and Schwab with the 2012 Jack Webb. Both officers have resided in Beverly Hills for many years and together have provided their public services to the community for over 65 years.
Hecht was a representative for the Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles and can be seen throughout the week driving through the streets on patrols. He is a designated Level One reserve officer with full-time peace officer powers, a title held by few in California.
Schwab took part in the planning behind the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program when it first started out in the L.A. County, and has continued to do so for approximately 30 years. His work with the program allowed the program to expand across the country.
