I would like to congratulate Officer Doug Talbot for being named Officer of the Month for August 2011. Sergeant Eric Herman nominated him for this award.

The month of August was a stupendous and productive month for Officer Talbot. However, this is just an example of his continued high level of self initiated contacts for the month, and virtually every month. Officer Talbot handled a total of 160 incidents in August, with 87 self initiated contacts.  The incidents included 60 traffic stops, 25 citations, and 16 arrests, including 4 DUI arrests with 1 felony DUI.  

     Officer Talbot shows no slack in his patrol work. He continually shows he is a top performer, month after month by being productive in all areas of patrol work. Officer Talbot consistently makes arrests for a wide variety of criminal violations and focuses on the most current issues affecting the community. He looks beyond the initial contact and frequently locates criminal activity that would go unnoticed without his attention to detail. 

     Officer Talbot is a dedicated and efficient officer that continues to be a shining example for other officers to follow.  He consistently writes reports that are timely, concise, and detailed.  He continues to work well with other members of his crew and regularly volunteers to assist other officers, even when it is inconvenient for him.  Officer Talbot displays the qualities that make the Collinsville Police Department the best police agency in the area. For these reasons and many more, I believe Officer Talbot deserves to be recognized as Officer of the Month for August, 2011. 

 

 

 

I would like to congratulate Officer Todd Kunz for being named Officer of the Month for May 2011. Sergeant Brett Boerm nominated him for this award.

 During the month of May, Patrolman Kunz generated a total of 62 incidents; His activity included 6 arrests, 19 traffic stops and 10 vehicle/pedestrian/building checks.  Patrolman Kunz’s activity generated the following arrests: 3 DUI arrests, 1 felony warrant, and 1 misdemeanor warrant arrest.  He also issued 9 traffic citations during the month of May.  It should be noted that all of his activity was generated while working patrol only 8 days during the month of May due to training obligations.

 

 Those 8 days proved to be productive for Officer Kunz. He dedicated a large portion of his time  of his enforcement efforts in  identifying and arresting impaired drivers.  As indicated, he arrested three alcohol impaired drivers during the month of May, one of which qualified as a felony DUI arrest.  Officer Kunz is a fifteen year veteran of the Collinsville Police Department and continues forward with the mission of the Police Department by increasing efforts to focus on DUI enforcement. This type of proactive policing serves as evidence that he is mindful of the Police Departments mission, vision, and goals in making this a one of the safest cities in the metropolitan area

 

Although these arrests and activities aren’t typical of those that normally garner headlines or make news they are an intricate part of the proactive approach to law enforcement subscribed to by the Collinsville Police Department.  Patrolman Kunz continues to prove his self to be dedicated employee of the Collinsville Police Department and it is an honor to commend him his efforts.

                

 

I would like to congratulate Officer Keith Jackson for being named Officer of the Month for July 2011. Acting Sergeant Steve Pyrdeck nominated him for this award.

The month of July was an outstanding and productive month for Officer Jackson with a 189 total incidents including 27 arrests, 7 of that were felonies, 1 DUI, and 31 citations.  It should be noted, 105 of these events were self-initiated. 

Officer Jackson comes to work every day and goes above and beyond in fulfilling his commitment to the citizens of Collinsville.  Officer Jackson starts every workday with a positive attitude; he is self-motivated, and exemplifies the proactive philosophy of the Collinsville Police Department.

 

 As acting Sergeant Pyrdeck stated in his nomination, “Officer Jackson maintains enthusiasm when completing his patrol responsibilities and consistently proves himself to be a talented, hard-working, and reliable officer.  For this reason and many others, he should be recognized as the Officer of the Month for July 2011”.  I could not agree more and would like to congratulate Keith on this award.      

 

 

I would like to congratulate Officer Doug Talbot for being named Officer of the Month for June 2011; Sergeant Eric Herman nominated him for this award.

 In June 2011, Officer Doug Talbot handled 120 incidents for the month and generated 64 self initiated contacts.  Of those 64 SIFA contacts, Officer Talbot initiated 24 arrests, including 7 DUI arrests (2 felonies) and 2 drug-related arrests.

 Officer Talbot is a veteran police officer, and other officers within the department often seek advice, guidance, and assistance from Officer Talbot, especially with DUI cases.  Officer Talbot has earned the respect of his peers through his tireless work ethic and knowledge of criminal laws and procedures.

 Officer Talbot is very deserving of recognition for his diligent work this past month and I again congratulate him for being chosen as Officer of the Month for June 2011. 

 

 

 

I would like to congratulate Officer Michael Reichert for being named Officer of the Month for April 2011. Sergeant Chuck Mackin nominated him for this award.

Officer Reichert continually reflects the proactive and innovative philosophy of law enforcement followed by the Collinsville Police Department.  He has demonstrated this by his aggressive approach to drug trafficking in the area.

Officer Reichert had 166 total incidents with 6 arrests and 7 citations in 13 working days. In addition to this he had 3 self initiated significant incidents that are very worthy of praise.

On 4-15-11 Officer Mike Reichert was performing proactive drug interdiction at Fed Ex and discovered a suspicious package. The package contained two pounds of cannabis. A controlled delivery was initiated with the assistance of another agency and the package was delivered to a Madison County address where two suspects were arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession with Intent to Deliver Cannabis.

 Again on 4-21-11 Officer Reichert was at Fed Ex again and discovered another suspicious package. The package contained two pounds of cannabis. Another controlled delivery was initiated by the Collinsville Police Department. The Package was delivered locally and this time three suspects were charged with Unlawful Possession with Intent to Deliver Cannabis.

Astonishingly on 4-26-11 Officer Reichert again discovered a suspicious package while at Fed Ex.  The package contained one pound of cannabis. An investigation was opened and two suspects identified. Charges are pending against the two suspects.

Officer Reichert is very deserving of recognition for his diligent work this past month and I again congratulate him for being chosen as Officer of the Month for April 2011.
