2020 Officer of the Year

Officer Mark Bramer

Officer Mark Bramer strives to make a difference every day, whether he is responding to calls  or making traffic stops. He demonstrates wonderful communication skills, compassion, and  respect for all people, but is quick to take action when necessary. Mark enjoys being  proactive and keeping the community safe, responding to calls quickly and following cases  through to completion. Because of his tenacity, many crimes have been solved and he has  cleared cases solely upon his follow-through and investigation.

Mark's work ethic is exemplary. He works as hard on minor traffic complaints as he does on  major crimes. He is more than willing to take on any assignment with a positive "can do"  attitude and humble demeanor, viewing it as "all in a days work". Officer Bramer is  consistently one of MWPD's most active officers, in the top three for traffic stops and self-  initiated activities.  He is deserving of the title "Officer of the Year".


Mark is an asset to the City of Mt. Washington, our agency and our community, but he is  certainly not alone. Nine (9) officers were nominated for this year's award. The voting came  down to four (4) officers, with the votes being separated by only one or two votes. As we honor  Officer Bramer we would also like to acknowledge the other nominees for their efforts during  2020: Austin Battcher, Jesse Bratcher, Evan Brown, James Miller, Joe O'Toole, Michael  Roberson, Jeremy Schmidt and Jeff Roby.

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.
