Gilbert Police Commendations
Granite Mountain Hot Shot Memorial Service
I would like to personally thank you for the thirteen traffic officers that you provided for the Granite Mountain Hot Shot Memorial Service. Your Traffic Lieutenant and his Sergeants were extremely valuable in assisting me in the Traffic Control Operations Center and in the field. All of your officers were extremely professional and competent. I truly appreciated the fact that when an issue arose, I could delegate it to your team and it was properly handled, with no further follow up needed. Without your team’s attention to detail, my job would have been nearly impossible. You should be extremely proud of your traffic team. Their willingness to help in such an event is commendable. The task our group handled was not the most glamorous detail in this event but was vital to control the ingress and egress of the large amount of vehicles and fire apparatus'. Your team completed each task without a single complaint, with the utmost professionalism. Your enthusiasm to provide such a large team and allow them to leave your jurisdiction to assist in such a major event is commendable.
Without cooperation from multiple jurisdictions, and specifically Gilbert Police Department, the day would not have been the success it was. The Town of Gilbert should be proud of your team. Lieutenant John Woods Prescott Valley Police Department
