The Danville Police Department implemented an Officer of the Month program in 2018. Each month, Chief Scott Booth asks supervisors assigned to the Operations Division to select an officer that has gone “above and beyond” in the performance of his or her duties and write up a brief synopsis detailing those efforts. The members of the command staff then meet, review the submissions, and make a selection. The same process is also followed for the Services Division, and an officer assigned to a unit other than Operations is selected as well.
For the month of October, I would like to congratulate the following officers for their selection as the Officers of the Month:
Officer, A. I. Dailey
Officer of the Month
On October 11, 2019, Officer A. I. Dailey investigated a burglary. He took the initiative and worked the case from the beginning to the end. Officer Dailey wrote the initial report, took photographs, collected evidence, obtained a search warrant, arrest warrant, and processed the suspect at the jail. He showed enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile to get the job done when these tasks are normally performed by other specialized units within the Department. Good job!
Detective, J. M. Masi
Specialty Officer of the Month
On October 22, 2019, Detective J. M. Masi was assigned a case and displayeddiligence on a sensitive investigation involving a minor. Relying oninstinct, knowledge acquired through training, education, and experience, hewas able to develop information helpful in the case. Detective Masiconducted several interviews, followed up on leads, and was able to arrest thesuspect. This case is just one example of his determination and drive toserve our community. Outstanding work!
Please join me in congratulating our officers of the month for October 2019!
