Oro Valley volunteer George Royer has been selected for recognition by the League of Arizona Cities and Towns through its AZ Cities @ Work campaign, designed to educate and inform citizens about the work their local governments do each and every day. George’s profile will be featured on the AZ Cities @ Work web page and in social media.

Royer, who was also one of two individuals selected as the Town of Oro Valley’s 2012 Volunteers of the Year, is a long-time volunteer with the Oro Valley Police Department’s Citizen Volunteer Assistance Program. Since he began volunteering for the Town in 2003, George has logged more than 6,000 hours in the Police Department, working at the front desk, providing fingerprinting services, working special events and going out on weekly patrols.

“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 Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath in a press release. “George is a shining example of the caliber of the volunteers in our community.”

More than simply the hours he puts in, George is known for his kindness, upbeat attitude and willingness to serve the residents of Oro Valley.
