HCPD officers honored at BOC meeting


By Monroe Roark
Times Correspondent

  Several members of the Henry County Police Department were recognized yesterday at the regular Board of Commissioners meeting for their recent work.

  Detective Tom Stott, who investigates Internet crimes against children, was asked by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to participate in the multi-agency Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force’s “Operation Broken Heart.”

  The task force netted 14 arrests of individuals seeking to have sex with children in the metro Atlanta area, and GBI director Vernon Keenan sent a letter March 28 to HCPD Chief Keith Nichols expressing his appreciation for Stott's work on the operation. Nichols wanted to publicly commend Stott as well.

  “Detective Stott was an integral team player whose efforts contributed to the success of this operation,” Keenan wrote. “I am very proud of the multi-agency partnership of ‘Operation Broken Heart.’ The dedication, knowledge and expertise of the law enforcement officers and support personnel who participated in this endeavor was unsurpassed. With professional, hard-working participants such as Detective Tom Stott, we are better able to protect children in Georgia.”

  In a separate item, Mothers Against Drunk Driving of Georgia recognized the HCPD at its March 27 Law Enforcement Golden Shield Honor Awards Banquet in Atlanta, with accolades including DUI Agency Hero and Statewide Agency of the Year for the second year in a row.

  HCPD Officer Timothy Williams was named statewide Officer of the Year and was recognized for making 162 DUI arrests in 2013. He received a Red Pin, which signifies 150 or more DUI arrests in a single year.

  The Silver Pin for 50-99 DUI arrests was presented to officers Robert Butera (96) and Kelly Horne (74).

  The Bronze Pin for 25-49 DUI arrests went to Sgt. Scott Cubmie (46) as well as officers Wesley McNure (43), Parks McIntosh (47) and Clint Jones (32).
