Officer Holly Lawrence has 10 years of experience with the Sunnyvale Public Safety Department, serving in the dual role of a Police Officer and Firefighter. She is a qualified Background Investigator, an advisor for the department's Explorer program, and a member of the Crisis Negotiations Team. Holly was recognized by her department as Sunnyvale’s 2011 Officer of the Year and by the Santa Clara County board of supervisors as CIT officer of the year.
As a Neighborhood Resource Officer in the Crime Prevention Unit, Officer Lawrence works with local schools and neighborhood groups on law enforcement and crime prevention issues. It was the absence of resources and training in the cyber safety area that motivated Office Lawrence to create a program for school and law enforcement personnel that is now certified for Police Officer Standards Training.
