Officer of the Month

From Sergeant Jeremy Nierman’s nomination: Officer Banks’ actions are one of community engagement, proactive police work and follow through. Officer Banks is one of those officers who look at police work as a process of obtaining information, analyzing it, acting on it at the right time, making the arrest, and then obtaining even more information for possible future arrests.

Some examples:

  • During a domestic call – Officer Banks sorted thorugh conflicting statements between a man and his stepson – obtained physical evidence – and placed the stepfather under arrest – which got a felon off the streets.
  • At a stabbing call – he provided first-aid to the victim of the stabbing – obtained a description of the suspect – who was spotted. Officer Banks took a photo to get a positive identification – and even recovered a dollar with blood on it for evidence.
  • He responded to a fight at George Wythe High School – and arrested one suspect – who had a loaded 9mm handgun in his pants.

Congratulations to Officer George Banks – the Department’s Officer of the Month for February!
