The CAPS Media crew recorded the City of Ventura Mayor’s Arts Awards at the Museum of Ventura County. The annual program honors outstanding contributions to the cultural community by city residents, artists, educators, organizations and business leaders. Mayor Erik Nasarenko recognized the 2017 recipients. The Mayor’s Arts Awards gala is airing on CAPS Media throughout the month.
CAPS Media produced a special video recognizing the Ventura Police Community Foundation’s “We’ve Got Your Back” campaign. Local citizens and businesses stepped-up to help fund the vital program to purchase lifesaving protective vests for police officers facing high-powered assaults in the field. The successful campaign provides for high-impact vests to be included in every patrol car and response vehicle. The CAPS Crew also covered the Coffee with a Cop event at Café Ficelle where Ventura police officers and residents met, mingled and shared a fine cup of coffee in an informal, friendly environment.
CAPS Media also produced a special video capturing the moving memorial service honoring Ventura County Fire Department’s fallen hero Captain Scott Osler who died in the line of duty. The service airs on CAPS Media Channel 15 throughout the month.
