Officer of the 3rd Quarter Award

                MPO Timothy Thomas has been selected as Officer of the Third Quarter at the Franconia District Station for action taken on August 3, 2011.

                On Wednesday, August 3, MPO Thomas was dispatched to a bank robbery that just occurred at the SunTrust Bank on Richmond Highway in the Lorton Plaza Shopping Center.  An armed suspect had just robbed the bank and fled on foot. Other officers were already in the area for another event and quickly surrounded the bank. One possible suspect was detained behind the shopping center while MPO Thomas continued searching. After getting out of car and searching on foot, he came across another suspect under the bridge on Lorton Road that crosses Pohick Creek. MPO Thomas quickly determined the individual was indeed the suspect from the bank robbery. William J. Kistler was arrested and charged with the robbery.

                MPO Thomas is a 25-year-veteran of the department who does not shy away from his duty. Sergeant Michael Huminik, MPO Thomas’ supervisor, added, “This is just one example of exceptional police work by MPO Tim Thomas. In the past several months he also arrested a burglar who police believe to be a sexual predator. He steps up to the plate and volunteers for complex complaints, even when he is not initially dispatched. The CIS [Criminal Investigations Section] supervisor has also commended him for his well-investigated and well-written burglary reports. Additionally, MPO Thomas recently provided Terrorism training for the entire station.”
