Officer of the Month Program

Chief Pitcock implemented an Officer of the Month Program shortly after being named chief of police in January 2019.  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.
