April 22 – April 23, 2014

Today’s Good News
Kudos to Officer Charles Baldwin who was named Second Precinct’s Officer of the Month for March! Officer Baldwin recently returned to the Department and he immediately picked up right where he left off in terms of productivity, being involved in the community and motivating his fellow officers.

When it comes to problem solving, Officer Baldwin often goes to Lt. Darrell Goins to ask what the most pressing issues are and then comes up with a plan to address them. A few examples include speaking with a lot of non-residents who were congregating in Southwood and gathering information about suspicious individuals to pass along to the Southwood Unit. He’s also known for his dogged determination when it comes to finding wanting persons in Sector 212. Officer Baldwin uses every tool available to find common threads that then lead him to the wanted person.

But leadership is where he really shines. He’s such a people person with a positive and proactive outlook that it motivates everyone else around him. He regularly shares his sector knowledge with other officers; aids officers on high priority calls; and provides assistance in reading lineups and daily briefing information.

Sector Lt. Goins says of Baldwin: “If I could build an officer, it would be Officer Baldwin. He has every aspect that a police officer should have: professionalism, excellent work ethic and he’s a team player.”

We think that sums it up! Thank you and congratulations Officer Charles Baldwin, our Second Precinct Officer of the Month!
