Information Bulletin: Officers Christopher Burbrink and Ryan Lazisky / Officer of the Year


               Officers Christopher Burbrink and Ryan Lazisky received Officer of the Year awards from the Mount Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce on October 1. They were nominated by Lt. Mark Hopson, supervisor of the Franconia Station Criminal Investigation Section. The officers are currently assigned to the Springfield Mall where they investigate a myriad of crimes. Lt. Hopson said they have “a strong work ethic and unbelievable police instinct.” He also described them as “two of the best officers in the county.”

                A shoplifting ring targeted Ulta cosmetic stores between December 2009 and March 2010. Officers Burbrink and Lazisky collected evidence and conducted stakeouts in order to arrest the suspects who had stolen over $7000 worth of merchandise. Two suspects stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from Home Depot on Franconia Road in June 2010. The suspects would return the stolen items for gift cards and then pawn them for half their value. Officers Burbrink and Lazisky worked with loss prevention employees to identify and arrest the suspects by analyzing transaction records, security footage and conducting line-ups. Both officers worked together to solve several other crime sprees including credit card theft and fraud.
