Some of the best news that comes out of this department is when we recognize and award officers for exceptional work! This past week four officers — Craig Morgan, Jeff Pratt, Curtis Bateman and Sgt. Scott Killian — were awarded the Commander’s Commendation for their work in solving a home invasion robbery and multiple burglaries that occurred this past fall.

These guys were instrumental in a successful resolution to these crimes, particularly the woman victimized in the home invasion. They went above and beyond to gather evidence and put together a detailed and thorough case report for prosecutors.

After we made the arrest, the victim said she slept better for the first time in weeks knowing that the suspect was caught and off the streets. It’s great the officers did so much to bring that kind of peace of mind.

Way to go! We certainly appreciate the work you all did!
