Job Well Done Nominee

P.S.O. Steve Ostin


During a recent Citizens Academy class a participant wished to share a positive experience he had with one of our officers assigned to the area of the city he resides in.  The class participant stated that Officer Steve Ostin saw him outside of his home while patrolling his neighborhood and made a point to stop and introduce himself, and learned that he was a board member of his community.  During the conversation Officer Ostin was invited to one of the board meetings for the community.   Officer Ostin later came to one of the board meetings to participate and introduce himself to more community members as one of the officers that is assigned to their community and is there to serve them.  The class participant stated that Officer Ostin’s actions and embodiment of our department’s community policing philosophy really made an impact on him and he was very appreciative of Officer Ostin and our department.  Job Well Done, Steve.
