Cal police officer /*Lisa Campbell*/ received a proclamation from East Bay Congressman /*Jerry McNerney*/ (D-Pleasanton) at San Ramon City Hall.
McNerney had Campbell's name added to the official congressional record for taking a few extra steps that led to Garrido's arrest.
"It just took the intuition of an officer to recognize a situation that didn't seem right, and in my opinion, that's the essence of good police work," McNerney said.
Campbell ran a background check on /*Garrido*/ after he showed up and tried to distribute religious material on campus. She found out he was a sex offender and eventually his parole officer was contacted.
The resulting investigation freed /*Jaycee Dugard*/ who had been held captive since her kidnapping in 1991.
