COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott is being recognized for his outstanding community service by a local faith-based, non-profit organization.

The Renaissance Foundation will give Chief Scott the 2012 ‘Passing the Torch Award.’

He is being honored based on his tireless and selfless service to Columbia communities.

Chief Scott says, “I proudly accept this award on behalf of every Columbia Police Officer at the Department. When I became Police Chief, it was my goal to improve community relations between residents and officers. Such a relationship is essential to successful community policing and crime fighting. Residents are the ones who call in the crime tips and are proactive with us. We cannot deter crime without such valuable residents and officers. Thank you Renaissance Foundation for recognizing the importance behind such a strong partnership.”

The Awards Gala took place on Friday, November 30, 2012 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

According to the Foundation, the “Passing the Torch” Awards Gala recognizes servant leaders who make significant contributions to various communities by improving the quality of life within South Carolina.

The event is an opportunity for the public to celebrate the achievements of the new generation of servant leaders who continue to build strong cross-cultural communities.
