2019 Officer of the Year

Officer Ben Norris 

The Mt. Washington Police Department’s Officer of the Year Award developed from the implementation of the Officer of the Month Award. The sponsor of our officer of the month program, Team Pruitt with Real Estate Market Place, a local real estate company, wanted to further recognize the officers at MWPD. To receive the award an officer doesn’t necessarily have to be honored as an officer of the month. This is a culmination of performance from the entire year. Nominations can come from officers, supervisors, and the citizens we serve. The Award Committee will review nominations and make the final selection. Officer Ben Norris has been selected by the Award Committee as the agencies 2019 MWPD Officer of the year. While a tough decision for the committee with so many excellent officers, Ben was selected for his significant contributions throughout 2019. An example of Ben’s contributions include tracking any registered sex offenders residing within the city.         Congratulations to Ben and all the officers nominated.

Officer of the Month Program

  The program is sponsored by Team Pruitt with Real Estate Market Place, a local real estate company and Awards Center, a long-standing trophy and commemorative plaque company. Any member of the police department or community may submit a MWPD Officer for recognition as officer of the month; there is also a committee representing the community that votes and approves the selection.  The selected officer is recognized at the second monthly city council meeting for their outstanding performance above and beyond the call of duty.
