They will be invited to a ceremony at the Palm Springs Police Department where the Chief of Police will award them plaques and prize packages, and they will be publicly recognized by program media sponsors KESQ and The Desert Sun. All nominees will receive a DO THE RIGHT THING T-shirt, a certificate of recognition, and a congratulatory letter from Chief Mills.
