Officer of the Month

From his nomination – Officer Ardila is a proactive, motivated officer. Last month, he handled dozens of radio calls in his sector – while also finding time for self-initiated activity that leads to significant arrests.

For example, during a traffic stop with Officer Ardila and Officer Helfrecht were attacked by several individuals as they attempted to extract the armed driver from the vehicle. Eventually, all three suspects were arrested. 120 baggies of cocaine and a firearm were recovered.

Officer Ardila is highly visible in the focus areas of Sector 112 - often getting out of his vehicle – to walk in those areas.

During one patrol he had an illegally parked vehicle towed. Inside he found marijuana and an AR-15.

In another incident, he and a newly-graduated Recruit Franklin noticed stopped a vehicle on Maury Street – based on Officer Ardila’s hunch - and recovered heroin and 4 firearms.

It’s easy to see why he is recognized by his peers and supervisors as a reliable and dependable officer.

Congratulations to Officer Alejandro Ardila – the Department’s Officer of the Month for March!
