The League of Arizona Cities and Towns recognized George Royer of Oro Valley for his volunteer efforts, featuring him on its website, www.azcitieswork.com online.

Royer, who was named an Oro Valley 2012 Volunteer of the Year, has logged more than 6,000 hours with the Oro Valley Police Department’s Citizen Volunteer Assistance Program since 2003. He works at the front desk on fingerprinting services, goes out on weekly patrols and attends special events.

“The Town of Oro Valley has an impressive group of volunteers—approximately 270 at last count—who donate more than 35,000 hours of their time annually," said Mayor Satish Hiremath, in a news release. "George is a shining example of the caliber of the volunteers in our community.”
