Mobile Police Announce June Officer of the MonthJuly 08, 2014
The Mobile Police Department would like to extend an open invitation to media for the Officer of the Month Luncheon to be held on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. at Azalea City Golf Course, located at 1000 Gaillard Drive. The Officer of the Month program is presented by the Midtown Optimist Club.
Officer Bryan Johnson, who has served as a Mobile police officer sine 2011, currently serves as an officer in the Third Precinct and will be awarded the honor for his exceptional performance during the month of June.
The following is one example of his exemplary service during this month:
While on night shift on June 9, 2014, two Waffle House restaurants were robbed within an hour, adding to a serial case of robberies of this restaurant. Officers in the area were told to be on the lookout for a specific vehicle thought to be driven by the robbery suspects. Officer Johnson moved into a strategic area in the perimeter of the most recent robbery and almost immediately observed a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle description.
Officer Johnson attempted to stop the vehicle and, when the driver refused to stop, a pursuit was initiated. The subjects attempted to elude Officer Johnson, who was diligent in his pursuit. Mobile Police were eventually able to take the suspects into custody with the assistance of K-9 units and Prichard Police.
These arrests solved a series of robberies that included multiple restaurants and gas stations.
During the month of June, Officer Johnson serviced 68 calls, backed 36 calls, made 16 felony and 13 misdemeanor arrests.
Officer Johnsonís initiative and enthusiasm in performing his duties show a proactive police style which is an asset to the Mobile Police Department. His success is the result of professional demeanor and high-quality police work.
