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

January: Officer Beckford #5912 for an outstanding month of enforcement, which is not unusual as this is his fourth award for Officer of the Month since beginning his career in law enforcement with BCoPD in December of 2015. Officer Beckford is a proactive officer who maintains an awareness of crime trends and other issues on the post he patrols. Being aware of a warrant for a resident in the Pleasant Ridge area, he maintained a presence in the area until he located the wanted subject and made the arrest, making a large narcotics and paraphernalia seizure and adding distribution of narcotics to the list of charges on this criminal.

February: Franklin Precinct Community Action Team (Sergeant Harvey #4059, Officer Stewart #4145, Officer Yowell #4221, Officer Daum #5533, and Officer Klein #4229) for their unwavering enthusiasm and commitment to the job and their teammates. Together they devised a plan to serve the precinct's outstanding warrants, and accomplished serving more than 60% of them, beginning with the most serious warrants and in serving warrants in high crime areas, thus also tackling efforts to reduce crime in those areas through saturation of police presence.
