Today’s Good News

Kudos to Officer Michael Bryson who was named First Precinct’s Officer of the Month for December! Officer Michael Bryson’s quick response and knowledge of his sector was instrumental last month in the safe arrest of two armed offenders. As the midnight shift officer responded to investigate a report of two men armed with an assault rifle, he spotted one man trying hide in a wooded area, and safely detained him. As other officers arrested the second man, Officer Bryson recognized him and listened as the man repeatedly gave the officers a false name despite multiple chances to come clean.

Once Officer Bryson revealed man’s true identity, officers discovered he had nine outstanding warrants! Officer Bryson’s keen observation and tactically sound approach resulted in a dangerous offender being safely removed from city streets. Combine this with Officer Bryson’s 32 radio calls, 13 executed warrants and 6 arrests during only 10 days of work last month and you have an outstanding Officer of the Month for December! Thank you Officer Bryson!
