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, February 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.
Officer John Spottswood, who has served as a Mobile police officer for 10 years, currently serves as an officer in the Fifth Precinct and will be awarded the honor for his exceptional performance during the month of January.
During the month of January, Officer Spottswood conducted meticulous investigations which led to the apprehension and arrests of multiple burglary-related offenders. One suspect eluded police for over two hours, eventually turning himself in to Metro Jail on warrants. Officer Spottswood was able to sign additional warrants for Attempting to Elude and Reckless Endangerment, giving this subject additional time off the streets of Mobile.
During the month of January, Officer Spottswood serviced 92 calls, backed 27 calls, made two felony and nine misdemeanor arrests.
Officer Spottwood’s 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.
