2017 Good News Calendar

We continue to review some great work from the previous year to make sure officers get the appreciation they deserve!

Precinct officers have great success when working together - but it's even better when officers from different units work a case.

A call came in about shots fired and an injured individual and Officer Chad Collins (now with Mounted Unit) responded and gathered information about a suspect vehicle.

First Precinct MPO Deane Waite spotted the vehicle and made the stop - which turned into a foot pursuit! After MPO Waite made the arrest, K-9 Officer Wes Moore - while working with Major Crimes Detective Mark Godwin - located evidence which included an assault rifle which was seized.

Great work from officers from distinct units of the Department!
