Coral Springs Police Award Monica Vargas as their ‘Civilian of the Quarter’



The challenge of coordinating events in a safe and socially distanced environment is why the Coral Springs Police Department has named Monica Vargas, their Civilian of the Quarter.

The COVID 19 pandemic has caused extra work and planning for the Community Involvement Outreach programming; however, Vargas, the coordinator, completed her assignments and duties and participated with other city workgroups to accomplish their goals.

Vargas coordinated and reimagined community events like the DEA Pill Drug Takeback, Shred-a-thons, Angel Tree Toy Giveaways, Abi’s Place Holiday Party, Holiday Toy Drive, among a multitude of community-specific events.

She was able to help facilitate 350 families with meals and gift cards for the Thanksgiving Holiday. When some of the residents heard about the great work, they reached out to her to help generate donations to feed 350 families in December.

According to the Coral Springs Police, the added challenge of making these events occur in a challenging environment is what makes these accomplishments outstanding.
