Officers of the 1st Quarter Award

 

            Officer Jeff Mauro, Police Officer First Class Tim Wallace, and Detective Chris Burbrink were selected as the Officers of the First Quarter at the Franconia District Station.

            While taking a report of a burglary at a local church, Officer Mauro took care in his processing and was able to lift several latent fingerprints from the scene.  While those prints were being analyzed, the investigation continued.

            PFC Wallace was conducting routine patrols as a member of the SET team and came into contact with a suspicious person on a traffic stop.  The result of which was PFC Wallace seizing property that belonged to the church that had been burglarized weeks earlier, property that had gone unreported until that time as it had not been noticed missing.

            Based on information provided by PFC Wallace, Detective Burbrink was able to interview the suspect, a local resident, and obtain a confession.  Confirmation was received that the fingerprints lifted by Officer Mauro were in fact, those of the suspect. 

            This case exemplifies how three officers from different units can work effectively by their attention to detail and communication.  By working together and sharing information, one more burglar is off the street.  The three officers will be recognized by the Franconia CAC at their next meeting on May 16, 2012.  All are welcome to attend.
