Mobile Police Announce February Officer of the Month
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, March 11, 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.
Corporal Joshua Himes, who has served as a Mobile police officer since 2005, currently serves as a corporal in the Fifth Precinct and will be awarded the honor for his exceptional performance during the month of February.
During the month of February, Corporal Himes conducted meticulous investigations which led to the apprehension and arrests of multiple robbery-related offenders. In one instance, Corporal Himes responded to a commercial robbery in progress. Upon arrival to the business, Himes entered the location while the suspect was still in the progress of completing the armed robbery. Himes and an off-duty officer were able to apprehend the suspect with no injuries to officers or bystanders.
During the month of February, Corporal Himes answered 36 calls for service and backed 17 calls. He made six on-scene felony arrests, five misdemeanor arrests and wrote 30 citations.
Corporal Himes’ 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 high-quality police work.
