MetroWest Award Ceremony
Submitted by: Sergeant Michael Marcus, Public Safety Officer at MetroWest

Recently two MetroWest officers were awarded the Protection Officer Matthew Little CCBPI Coin for their hard work and dedication to not only the agency, but the communities they serve. Officer Shawna Brooks and Officer Joseph Brown were the recipients of the honor. Read their stories below.

Officer Brooks' Award

Over the last few months the MetroWest Public Safety Program has made strides to become a vital, well respected part of the MetroWest community. This is mainly due to the outstanding connections being made in the communities each day. Recently, one Public Safety Officer in particular has exemplified our values and repeatedly demonstrated how CCBPI can affect positive change in the communities we serve. Public Safety Officer Shawna Brooks has shown that she is a true practitioner of CCBPI and has set the standard for future Public Safety Officers to follow.

Recently, Officer Brooks made contact with a resident that was both blind and mentally handicapped. After speaking with her she learned that the resident was waiting for a cab, but due to her handicaps she was unable to determine if it had even come yet. Officer Brooks not only walked the resident back home, but also called another cab and waited with her till it came. Her willingness to help and dedication to see things through to completion really shine in this instance.

On another occasion, Officer Brooks witnessed a young juvenile wandering alone in one of the communities she visited. Feeling that something wasn't right she made contact with the juvenile and after speaking with her for a short time was able to locate her unit and mother who was frantically looking for her. Officer Brooks not only was able to educate the mother about the Public Safety Program, but has since developed a positive relationship with the family and has been back to visit the juvenile several times. Her instincts and genuine concern for the members of the community were able to turn a potentially negative situation into an ongoing positive relationship.

Assisting Clearwater Police Department with a Call
Submitted by: Major Shaun P. Fogarty, Commander of Uniformed Services and K9 Training

On September 21st 2014, the Clearwater Police Department informed Sergeant Timothy Singleton of a carjacking that had just occurred in the area and provided a description of the vehicle. Sergeant Randy Bray was on Sector Patrol in the area and spotted the vehicle in question. While maintaining a visual of the vehicle, Sergeant Bray was able to relay the vehicle's direction of travel to Operations for Clearwater Police to respond. Sergeant Bray maintained a safe following distance until Clearwater Police were able to intercept the vehicle and a short vehicle pursuit ensued. An apprehension was made shortly thereafter without further incident resulting in two arrests. Major Eric Gandy from the Clearwater Police Department took the time to write an email to Captain Joseph Carchio thanking Sergeant Bray and our Operations staff for their assistance in this matter. Major Gandy was very appreciative for the professional and helpful communication from Sergeant Bray and the operators in locating the vehicle and relaying the information to Clearwater Police Dispatch in a clear, accurate and expedient fashion. Major Gandy further went to say that Sergeant Bray and Operations' actions were "instrumental" and "played a significant role" in deployment of their assets. Fantastic job Sergeant Bray and the operators who assisted on this event.
Take a Tour of the Public Safety Center
Submitted by: Chief Hector Rodriguez, Chief of Protective Services

Recently, we once again had the pleasure of touring some new Orlando clients through our Public Safety Center (the location of CIS headquarters) in Largo, Florida. The clients were able to get a behind the scenes look at our 24/7 Operations Center, meet with our department leaders (Accounting, Risk Management & Professional Standards, Human Resources, and Command Staff), as well as tour our training facility, which trains private and public sector practitioners internationally.

I highly encourage anyone that would like to tour our facilities to send me an email to setup a tour. It is very important to us that our clients fully understand the resources that are part of our service and see all of the work that goes on in the background to provide protection for clients' properties and mitigating their liabilities. These tours are truly a great experience for clients, not to mention a lot of fun! Transportation as well as lunch would be provided to any client that schedules a tour. I hope you take advantage of this opportunity and get to see why CIS is "The Critical Difference".
