Today’s Good News
Kudos to Officer Brian Sheridan who was named Third Precinct Precinct’s Officer of the Month for March! Officer Sheridan not only knows his sector very well, but he also knows the people within it. That paid off big time last month in two investigations where his knowledge was crucial to finding two suspects.
The first occurred on March 23 when he was working off duty in the Fan, but heard about a burglary in progress nearby. After hearing the suspect’s description, he immediately recognized the individual and went to his home. Despite the suspect’s attempt to hide behind a pillar on his own front porch, Officer Sheridan spotted him and took him into custody. After further investigation by detectives, a witness identified the man as the burglar and the stolen property was recovered behind the residence.
During the second incident, Officer Sheridan recognized from surveillance images a female suspect who was wanted for robbing a taxi cab driver. But the woman eluded all of Officer Sheridan’s precinct-wide attempts to find her at her usual locations. At one point, he missed her by mere minutes! But that didn’t deter him! A short time later, he finally caught up with her at her residence early one morning and safely took her into custody.
Officer Sheridan also recognizes the importance of prevention, which is why he took the time to do walking patrol in the areas of Byrd Park and Maymont, educating citizens in an effort to deter car break-ins. These are just a few examples of the great work Officer Sheridan does every month. Thank you, and congratulations Officer Brian Sheridan—our Third Precinct Officer of the Month!
