Rotary will honor Reading Police Department Patrolman David Savio as an Unsung Hero as part of the District Foundation Dinner, an Evening to Celebrate Heroes in our Community on November 7 at Andover Country Club.
Patrolman David Savio exemplifies the core values of duty, honor and selfless service.  He has served the Reading community for 25 years and has been recognized countless times by the community for his support and dedication.  Serving as Safety Officer, Officer Savio was awarded the AAA Gold Award for traffic safety and the MADD (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving) Officer of the Year Award.  He has been awarded 4 Commendations from the RPD for distinction in service, including saving the life of a man trapped under a car in 2009.  In addition, Officer Savio is a Field Training Officer and has been featured in an educational documentary entitled “Behind Blue Lights.”  In his spare time, Officer Savio is also an active supporter of “Sean’s Ride” for MIT Officer Sean Collier who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings and an active member of the Road Dawgs Motorcycle Club which supports active and retired law enforcement. 
Reading Rotary is pleased to honor Patrolman Savio and to award him a Paul Harris Fellow Recognition.
