Feb. 12 – Feb. 14, 2014

Today’s Good News
Kudos to Master Patrol Officer Jacob DeBoard who was named Third Precinct Precinct’s Officer of the Month for January! MPO DeBoard’s “spidey” senses were definitely tingling on Jan. 5 when he spotted two men pushing a city trash can down the middle of the street. He stopped to talk with both men and also peeked inside the trash can where he discovered several pieces of cut copper and air conditioning parts.

Officer DeBoard then requested additional units check the area for possible burglaries and charged both men with misdemeanor crimes to hold them. He took the lead the next day, following up with detectives, and learned that a specific building being renovated had been burglarized. Officer DeBoard then interviewed several people involved with the building and through these interactions he was able to charge the two men with burglary, grand larceny and possession of burglary tools.

But it was not just his excellent investigation skills that we want to recognize. Later in the month, Officer DeBoard responded to a violent domestic situation and was able to use his communication skills to calm everyone involved and safely arrest the offender. He also went a step further when he noticed that there were five children living in the house without heat or running water. His follow-up was instrumental in getting the home condemned and the children safely relocated to healthier living conditions. Thank you and congratulations, Master Patrol Officer Jacob DeBoard!
