Jan. 15 – Jan. 16, 2014

Today’s Good News
Kudos to Officer Steven Gibson who was named Third Precinct’s Officer of the Month for December! Officer Gibson likes to stay busy and proactive so it was likely that solid work ethic that helped him make a quick arrest when he responded to a robbery call at a Rite-Aid on Jahnke Road last month. After hearing the suspect description, Officer Gibson searched the area, spotted the suspect and after a short foot pursuit, quickly took him into custody. After the victims identified the suspect, Officer Gibson was also able to recover all the items stolen in the robbery and obtain a full confession. He passed the information to detectives, who were then able to charge the suspect with robbery.

The robbery victims told Officer Gibson’s supervisors how appreciative they were for his actions and professionalism and said they felt saver knowing he was patrolling the area where they work.

Officer Gibson has also had a positive impact in the community by conducting outdoor roll calls during which he also takes the time to speak with residents about crime trends and explain what the department is doing to help deter the crimes. Thank you and congratulations Officer Steven Gibson!
