Based upon nominations from Detective Sergeant Scott Przekurat, Youth Services Officer Ted Criado and BUSD Psychologist Keith Jordan have been named winners of the Solano County Child Abuse Prevention Council's annual Law Enforcement and Educator of the Year awards for 2010. Below is information of the upcoming awards dinner. The two will be honored at an upcoming awards dinner on Thursday, October 28th in Fairfield.

"Since being assigned as the department's Youth Services Officer in December of 2009, Ted has done an excellent job in that position and is really making a positive impact on the lives of the kids he deals with," Chief Sandra Spagnoli said. "In addition to that, he has conducted outstanding investigations in juvenile cases that are very sensitive and delicate in nature.
