Police vehicle technician recognized

Public Safety Vehicle Technician Shawn Adams has been named the Police Department’s employee of the third quarter. The recognition is for “his work in maintaining our department’s fleet of vehicles, his responsiveness to the needs of his officers, and his willingness to take on new projects,” according to a Facebook posting.

This includes his help in upgrading the communications equipment on the department’s motorcycle, up-fitting a new dirt bike for patrol use, and working to help draft specifications for new cruisers. Adams was instrumental in finding two new patrol vehicles after a recent vehicle order was unexpectedly canceled due to production/supply issues.
