Employee Commendation Form

Employee Commendation Form

Everyone enjoys receiving recognition for their efforts. Thank you for a job well done, either verbal or written, is one of the best ways to let someone know that you appreciate their work. For Cotati Police Department Employees, these are most often sent to the Chief of Police. You may also advise the employee’s supervisor or Watch Commander or the City Manager’s office. 

A commendation may address any event that you deem noteworthy on the part of an employee whom you believe should be recognized. This may range from the display of unusual courtesy or compassion to significant life-saving measures or heroic acts. We are interested in hearing about your observations of any commendable act or behavior.

All commendations are formally documented and the affected employee(s) will be notified.

A commendation only takes a few minutes to write or communicate. It can go a long way to let the personnel of the Cotati Police Department know how you feel about them and their service.
