The Arcadia Police Department awarded their annual Police Officer of the Year and the Civilian Employee of the Year awards last night at the annual Police Association Christmas party. For 2010, the award recipients were Officer John Jurman and Logistical Services Officer Cris Hoefflin.
Officer John Jurman is pictured above left, along with Chief Bob Sanderson. Officer Jurman is a tenured member of the Department and is currently assigned to the Traffic Bureau. John was recognized for his service to the Department, the Police Association (APOA), and the community. John headed up the Arcadia Police Department Relay for Life team in 2010, spearheading our fundraising efforts to fight cancer. Most recently, John took it upon himself to seek donations from fellow personnel in order to purchase a market gift card for a family in need that he had come upon during a work shift, going above and beyond the normal call of duty.
Logistical Services Officer Cris Hoefflin was awarded the Arcadia Police Department, Civilian of the Year award for his service and dedication to not only the Department, but to his fellow employees, as well. Cris is our "go to" person and truly keeps our agency running on a daily basis. Cris is never without a friendly welcome and a smile to match. Whenever there is a task to be dealt with or a job to be done in our facility, Cris makes it happen. Pictured left to right are: Mike Hale, APOA Vice-President; Troy Hernandez, APOA President; Cris Hoefflin; and Chief Bob Sanderson.
Congratulations to both Officer John Jurman and to Logistical Services Officer Cris Hoefflin on their deserving awards!
