At 3:08 p.m., two unknown suspects, one brandishing a handgun, approached the victim and demanded his phone. The suspects took the victim's phone and fled.

At 2:45 p.m., two unknown suspects approached the juvenile victim and at gunpoint demanded that the victim empty his pockets. The suspects stole the victim's backpack and then fled on foot. The suspects dropped the backpack and the victim's property was recovered.

The following officers have been awarded Officer of the Month by their Commanding Officer:

January: Jointly awarded to Officer Mast #3655 of the Business Patrol Initiative (BPI) and Officer Celissaint #6024 of Shift 3 Patrol.

Officer Mast handled a number of community complaints regarding a homeless population in the area, made several warrant arrests, cleared 6 misdemeanor traffic cases and made 5 additional arrests for misdemeanor crimes. In addition, he works tirelessly at building relationships with business owners in the community, walking foot patrol and routinely checking in at area businesses.

Officer Celissaint has just over a year on the road and is consistently leading his squad in enforcement of traffic violations and criminal acts month after month. In one noteworthy case he was the first to arrive on a call for a burglary in progress. He caught two would-be burglars in the act and was able to arrest both before they made it into the resident's home. We expect great things from Officer Celissaint in the future with such a good start to his policing career!

February: Officer Cooper #5811 conducted an exemplary investigation into a home invasion robbery in which an elderly victim was beaten and hospitalized. Officer Cooper detected inconsistencies in one witnesses account of events that led him to further investigate the witness, ultimately determining her involvement in the crime and identifying two other suspects, as well as locating valuable evidence in the case. Arrests warrants were secured for all three suspects.

March: Jointly awarded to Officer Smith and Officer Jackson, both assigned to patrol operations. 

Officer Smith continued an investigation into a robbery call without the assistance of the precinct Investigative Services Team, developing suspect information and ultimately charging that suspect for the crime. He was also proactive in the Maple Crest and Compass Road areas which have had difficulty with crime, making self-initiated crime arrests and banning problem subjects from local businesses, arresting one banned patron for trespassing when he recognized him after seeing him back on the property.

Officer Jackson was equally as productive and proactive, making 69 traffic stops for various violations, issuing almost as many written warnings to drivers, proving that traffic stops are for safety, not county revenue! Those stops resulted in a total of 28 misdemeanor traffic crime clearances with 6 arrests. Officer Jackson's supervisors describe him as an officer who sets the bar high for himself, setting the example for his peers in law enforcement.

At 9 a.m., a known suspect physically assaulted the victim and stole his wallet containing cash before fleeing.
At 3:30 a.m., an unknown suspect entered the Captain's Sports Bar and Grill through the roof. Once inside, the suspect stole bottles of liquor from a store display.
At 10 p.m., the victim was approached by two unknown suspects. The suspects told the victim to empty his pockets and then assaulted him.
At 4:30 p.m., an unknown suspect entered the Purenergy Operating Services facility through a hole in the fence. Once inside, the suspect stole tools.
