Sergeant of the Month

With people like Sergeant Crystal Simmons leading our officers in the field, the Department is in good hands.

Just this past month, Sergeant Simmons coordinated bike patrols, directed patrols, warrant sweeps, truancy sweeps and outdoor roll calls. She is a veteran of Second Precinct with a vast knowledge of the area and the individuals within it. But more importantly, she has worked diligently with her fellow sergeants and newer officers to important this knowledge, which goes a long way toward making officers more productive and better equipped to investigate crimes.

One of her problem-solving initiatives last month resulted in a substantial reduction in crime in the Reedy Creek neighborhood. While working with her officers, she came up with the idea to use a detective vehicle for covert patrols in the targeted areas. This initiative allowed officers to observe, identify or arrest suspects for a variety of crimes. End result? A whopping 87.5 percent reduction in Reedy Creek’s Major Crime numbers!

Additionally, this type of project also has another benefit because it improves officer morale by changing the daily routine and allowing officers to creatively attack problem areas.

Thank you and good work, Second Precinct Sergeant Crystal Simmons, our Sergeant of the Month!
