2011 APD Officer & Civilian Employee of the Year

The Arcadia Police Department and the Arcadia Police Officers' Association (APOA) recently honored two of their own, awarding the Police Officer of the Year and Civilian Employee of the Year Awards. Acting Lieutenant Tom Le Veque was presented the 2011 Police Officer of the Year Award at the APOA Christmas Party and Senior Management Analyst Nancy Chik was presented the 2011 Civilian Employee of the Year Award at the Chief's Annual Christmas Breakfast. Ironically, in 2006, both Tom and Nancy were recipients of these same respective awards under then Police Chief Bob Sanderson. Lieutenant Le Veque is pictured above with APOA President, Officer John Jurman, and Senior Management Analyst Chik is pictured above with Chief Bob Guthrie.

Acting Lieutenant Tom Le Veque lateralled to APD in 1987 and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 1991. For the last twenty years, Tom has served as a Sergeant in various assignments and was recently asked to step into a temporary role as the Detective Bureau Commander. As an ancillary duty, Tom coordinates the APD social media presence, much of which has been done on his own time. APD has been recognized locally, and at the State and National levels, as an early adopter and leader of social media in law enforcement, much to the credit of Lieutenant Le Veque. Tom is commended for his work and dedication in this evolving field within law enforcement!

Senior Management Analyst Nancy Chik has been with the Department for fifteen years, serving as an Analyst through 2008 when she was promoted to Senior Management Analyst. Nancy has authored and coordinated numerous grants on behalf of APD and helps to manage our budget on a daily basis. Over the course of this past year, Nancy was called upon to work closely with Chief Bob Guthrie after both Police Chief Bob Sanderson and Captain Gene Gioia retired in early 2011. It takes a great deal of behind the scenes work to keep our agency up to date with budgets, reports to various entities, grant requirements, and Nancy played a vital role in assisting Chief Guthrie in this regard. Senior Management Analyst Chik is commended for her dedication and outstanding work this past year!
