Officer Bennett, His Wife and President Glenn Fowler
Officer of the Quarter for October was Officer J.G. Bennett. There was an
armed carjacking at the Olive Garden in River City Marketplace on July 30,
2012. The perpetrator took the car and a cell phone belonging to one of the
victims. The officer knew how to use GPS to track the suspects, and located
the car in the Westside. He coordinated with officers there, who attempted
to stop the car. The suspect fled, and shot at the officers. They eventually
made their capture with the help of a police K-9 dog.
another instance, Officer Bennett investigated the theft of a cell phone. He
reviewed video footage and spotted the thief taking the phone, going out to
a car, and then returning to complete the transaction at the establishment.
He was able to get a name and address of the purchaser of the money order.
Upon going to the address, Office Bennett determined the person at the
address was NOT the person seen in the video. With this personís help, he
was able to determine that this was a family member purchasing the money
order. He was able to locate the suspect (who refused to speak with him out
of fear of being arrested). The suspect WAS arrested, and the phone was
returned to the victim.
Office Bennett initiated actions while not on duty. These included arrests,
traffic stops, and traffic tickets.
Officer Bennett! We are lucky to have you in Zone 6.
