Officers, community members honored as heroes

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - The Chula Vista Police Department held its 21st annual awards and recognition ceremony Thursday.

The event recognized outstanding acts performed by police officers and members of the community.

Fourteen-year-old Josselyn Smitko was honored with a civic award. She called 911 after an intruder broke into her home and gave police such a good description of the suspect they were able to catch him quickly.

"I didn't really know what to do, cause he was like coming in and there was nothing really to do so I just did what I thought was best," she said.

Several officers were honored with safe driving awards and for their work on DUI and auto theft cases.
