Today’s Good News
Kudos to Officer Andre Guevara who was named Third Precinct’s Officer of the Month for February! Officer Guevara stayed busy in February as is usual for this high-energy officer. He’s especially popular in the Woodland Heights neighborhood after he conducted an operation to deal with a rash of car break-ins. During that assignment, the number of incidents dropped to zero. In addition, Officer Guevara advised residents of safety tips and specific ways they could help police in reducing car break-ins.
Officer Guevara’s quick thinking and adaptation to a constantly changing scene also allowed him to help save the life of a man who was threatening to shoot himself. Once another individual in the home was safe, Officer Guevara was able to convince the man to let officers take him into custody so he could be evaluated. He also worked in great detail with a citizen who had had his cell phone stolen, giving the victim some closure and helping detectives with his good investigation. Thank you and congratulations
Officer Andre Guevara!
