Officer of the Month - Click to enlarge

Officer Scarborough has many tools on his tool belt, but he knows that sometimes it’s his words that are the most powerful weapon.

This was on full display last month when he and other officers responded to a storage compound to investigate a man stealing copper wire. The offender climbed a fence topped with barbed wire and into an enclosed area. A perimeter was set up, but the man refused to comply with officer commands and tried to escape several times.

After several minutes, Officer Scarborough was able to develop a rapport with the man, convincing him to surrender to officers. Further investigation revealed this man was the prime suspect in the theft of nearly $20,000 in copper wire. Numerous charges are pending.

On the screen you see yet another example of his good work. Officer Scarborough noticed a family in need and reached out to Officer Battle and the Metro Tri Cities Martial Arts Society to assist him in helping the family get the kids prepared for school. They worked together to donations to equip the kids with brand new book bags filled with school supplies.

Thank you and congratulations to Second Precinct Officer Jerry Scarborough, our Officer of the Month for August!
