PFC Steven Kaganowich Recognized

            On January 26, 2012, Police Officer First Class Steven Kaganowich was one of six investigators in the Commonwealth of Virginia to be presented a Law Enforcement Partnership Award from GEICO Insurance Company for his exemplary investigative work conducted in 2011. 

            PFC Kaganowich, of the Franconia District Station, was dispatched to take a report of a vehicle having been stolen from a neighborhood in the Kingstowne area, in February 2011.  While conducting the interview, PFC Kaganowich made note of inconsistent statements by the complainant.  In addition, PFC Kaganowich furthered his case by writing court orders, whose responses allowed him to positively disprove the complainant’s story.  PFC Kaganowich coordinated his investigation with the Criminal Investigation Bureau Auto Theft section and GEICO Loss Prevention Investigators, to ensure all entities were apprised of his findings. 

            Based on PFC Kaganowich’s determination and efforts, he was able to successfully charge and prosecute the complainant for filing a false police report, and saved the GEICO Insurance Company from paying for a fraudulent claim.  PFC Kaganowich demonstrates that an alert and conscientious patrol officer with superior interview skills can be instrumental in successfully closing cases normally assigned to the Major Crimes Division, as well as insurance investigators.  PFC Kaganowich was able to save time and resources detectives and outside investigators utilize to work such cases.  His dedication to duty and justice prove PFC Kaganowich to be an asset to the Fairfax County Police Department and the law enforcement community in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
