Feb. 6 – Feb. 7, 2014

Today’s Good News
Kudos to Fourth Precinct Detective John Walker who was named the Department’s Problem Solver of the Month for January! Detective Walker’s dedication to the job is more than just investigating and solving the cases directly assigned to him. He pays attention to the crime trends in his precinct and follows up diligently to find the one break that cracks the case open.

That’s exactly what happened last month when he noticed a spike in burglaries in Sector 411. Detective Walker responded to a burglary to help process the scene and recovered numerous fingerprints, which he turned over to Forensics. He stayed in close contact with Forensics until they came up with a positive match, and he quickly followed up with the suspect. With the help of the FMT Tactical Unit, they arrested and charged the man with several burglaries.

But he didn’t stop there. Thanks to his solid investigation, he cleared three other burglary investigations because of his hard work. Thank you and congratulations Detective John Walker!
