From his nomination – Sgt. Gardner exemplifies the core traits of a good leader. He is energetic, accountable, and trustworthy. He will produce results. As a FMT sergeant, he has molded his eight officers into a team – while leading from the front.

As good example of that was during a daytime homicide in Mosby Court on February 13th. Although it was his day-off, Sgt. Gardner corralled his team – also off that day. During a high-visibility patrol they were able to detain an associate of the victim who was in possession of a 9-mm handgun – bent on revenge.

Earlier in the quarter, in the Oak Grove neighborhood, Sgt. Gardner and his team implemented a rapid response to a spike in violence there. In only 8 days, they made 9 arrests, executed two search warrants and had two properties condemned. The also seized six firearms along with crack cocaine and heroin. The effect on the neighborhood was immediate and noticeable.

As his nomination states: “In the current climate of police work, the demands made of Sgt. Gardner and his team are great – but his approaches every assignment and task with a positive “can do” attitude. The results are obvious.

Congratulations to Sgt. John Gardner of First Precinct – our Sergeant of the Quarter!
