2016 Good News Calendar

We continue to recognize the Department members who have been honored for their work in the Second Quarter of 2016.

Our Problem Solver of the Quarter is Second Precinct Detective Charles Baldwin!

Investigating Second Precinct incidents in an aggressive, thorough and diligent manner helped Detective Baldwin to achieve a nearly 23% clearance rate. While significant, that number doesn’t accurately represent his impact this quarter.

Working with few viable leads, he was able to link a single suspect to multiple incidents that the offender was indicted for on July 5 and arrested two days later.
