Officer of the Month

Drawing on his experience as a senior officer, being proactive through alternate mountain bike patrols and simultaneously handling his duties as a MPO, elevated Officer Wade to April’s Department Officer of the Month.

“His quick and well thought response” to incidents set Officer Wade apart.

On April 14, he arrived on the scene of a break-in on Larne Avenue, received a suspect description from a neighbor, and located the man fleeing the area. Officer Wade calmly broadcast the location to assisting officers while following the suspect in his marked patrol vehicle. Officers were able to apprehend the suspect.

About a week later, Officer Wade was flagged down by a victim who reported seeing her stolen vehicle on Belt Blvd. After locating the vehicle, he detained one suspect while two others fled in the stolen vehicle, which was being pursued by other officers.

Officer Wade was able to obtain information that the other two suspects were armed and had narcotics in the vehicle, then broadcast it as an officer safety alert. Two arrests were made and two firearms were recovered as well as heroin and barbiturates.

Congratulations to our Department Officer “Of the Month” – Timothy Wade!
