The August 2017 Officer of the Month is awarded to Officer J. Marino #5666.

Officer Marino recently received a permanent post car due to his constant enforcement efforts, motivational attitude, and teamwork with the other members of his squad. During the month of August Officer Marino was confronted with numerous law enforcement situations, including two DUI incidents which were quickly resolved due to his diligence, compassion and detailed investigation. Officer Marino carries out his law enforcement mission without forgetting the human element involved.

Officer Marino takes ownership of his post and makes it his goal to know the details of crime trends and the known offenders who live in the area. When a call for assistance was received from Howard County Police, not only did Officer Marino know the persons involved in the call, but he located them on his post. A detailed investigation revealed protective orders on file which resulted in the arrest of both subjects.

Being able to handle multiple types of incidents with maturity and professionalism has made Officer Marino an invaluable asset to his command. Officer Marino’s stalwart approach to law enforcement makes him a stellar officer worth emulating. Congratulations on a job well done, Officer Marino!
