Mobile Police Announce February Officer of the MonthMarch 10, 2015
The Mobile Police Department would like to extend an open invitation to friends and media for the Officer of the Month Luncheon to be held on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 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 Stephanie Armstrong, who has served as a Mobile police officer for four years, currently serves as an officer in the Fourth Precinct and will be awarded the honor for her exceptional performance during the month of February.
The following are examples of Officer Armstrong’s exemplary work during this time:
On February 7, 2015, Officer Armstrong made two separate traffic-related stops in her beat which, due to her diligence, resulted in significant drug arrests. Each arrest signifies dangerous narcotics and their dealers off the streets of the Mobile community.
On February 12, 2015, Officer Armstrong initiated a traffic stop for which the driver refused to pull over. After a short pursuit, the driver bailed from the vehicle. Officer Armstrong was able to take the driver into custody after a foot chase. In addition to six active warrants, the driver was found to have stolen electronics from a local hotel.
During the month of February, Officer Armstrong responded to 55 calls for service, provided back up for 53 additional complaints, made three felony arrests, 27 misdemeanor arrests and issued 33 traffic citations.
Her initiative and enthusiasm in performing her duties show a proactive police style which is an asset to the Mobile Police Department. Her success is the result of professional demeanor and high-quality police work.
