Media Advisory: City of Toronto staff contributing to community safety
  
The City of Toronto will honour 15 municipal employees for their actions - some
of them potentially life-saving - that contributed to community safety during
2003.

The CityWatch Annual Awards Night reception will also feature the announcement
and presentation of the 2003 CityWatch Annual Award to the employee judged most
deserving of this special honour. The annual winner will be chosen from among
all those who received CityWatch awards related to incidents that occurred in
2003. The 15 award winners (and in many cases their families) will be attending.

Date: Thursday, February 19
Time: 7 p.m.
Place: Rotunda, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

CityWatch is overseen by the City's Task Force on Community Safety and is
actively supported by the City of Toronto, Toronto Hydro Corporation, Bell
Mobility, many City of Toronto agencies, and the municipal employee
unions/associations. A working group of representatives from the participating
organizations selects CityWatch award recipients from nominations submitted by
the public and municipal staff.

CityWatch encourages municipal employees to take the initiative to notify
emergency personnel when, during the normal course of their work, they see or
suspect an emergency or criminal activity. Employee participation in the
program is voluntary, and actions are meant to benefit community safety while
not jeopardizing the safety of anyone involved.
