Two Morristown Police Department Detectives were recognized for their outstanding performance during 2014 with the annual “Top Cop” award. Police Chief Roger Overholt and Detective Captain Christian Newman presented Detective Lieutenant Vicki Arnold of the Crimes Against Persons Squad and Detective Ron Sargent of the Crimes Against Property Squad with a certificate of achievement award for outstanding performance, as the leading investigator on their respective squads. The presentation was held during last week’s Investigations Division staff meeting.
Detective Lieutenant Arnold, a veteran of over 25 years with the Morristown Police Department, and Detective Ron Sargent, a 16 year veteran, were chosen by Investigations Division Detective Captain Christian Newman based on a variety of criteria including:
- Detective’s Activity;
- Extra Activity;
- Open Case File Review;
- Closed Case File Review; and
- Peer Votes
Chief Overholt, Detective Captain Newman, and their co-workers congratulated the two Detectives.
This is the fourth “TOP COP” award for Detective Lieutenant Arnold, who received the award in 2005, 2011 and 2013. It is the second award for Detective Sargent; receiving the award in 2008.
Both Detectives’ names have been engraved on the “TOP COP” plaque housed in the Investigations Division to honor their achievements.
