David Dodson Employee of the Quarter Award
Sergeant Christopher Chadwick - 3rd Quarter 2013
Sgt. Chadwick
During the past five (5) months you have held dual positions for this Department - Road Patrol Supervisor and Training Sergeant. Your performance has been extraordinary as you managed to juggle the many duties of each position and do so with efficiency and effectiveness. You exhibited great ability to adequately supervise the members of your shift while maintaining a positive mentoring relationship with those new police officers completing the FTO process.  In addition, you were recently recognized by the United States Attorney's Office as a recipient of the Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award for your apprehension of a bank robber who committed an armed robbery at the Iberia Bank in February 2012. That case was recently and successfully prosecuted thanks to your apprehension. 

Finally, you were the recipient of a letter of appreciation from a citizen for your assistance in that citizen's time of crisis.  Her son was involved in a traffic crash on
I-595 and she was attempting to reach the crash site but was blocked by traffic.  She approached you for assistance as you too were stuck in the same traffic jam. You had the foresight and the compassion to serve a complete stranger in her time of greatest need by escorting her to the crash site and reuniting her with her son. This action was the perfect illustration of our Department's Mission Statement: Policing with a Passion for our Profession and Compassion for Those We Serve.

To summarize, you have unselfishly accepted and fulfilled the responsibilities of two (2) positions while maintaining a
positive attitude. You display complete commitment to the law enforcement profession during a time our Department
needed sacrifice. For that, your peers have selected you as the Employee of the Quarter for the 3rd Quarter of 2013.
