about his feelings on being chosen, PC Popper
stated "I feel very good, excited, confident and happy about myself, for
being chosen the police officer of the month. I want to thank the members
of this detachment and the community for their support and I encourage
the people of San Pedro to keep on giving the police their full support
in helping to reduce crime in the community."
As SP Police Officer of the Month, PC Popper
received $525, a picture frame, a $75 gift certificate from Casa Picasso
and a clay plaque.
An Officer of the Month is chosen as a way of
showing community support for our local police officers (men and women),
who do their best to make San Pedro a better place to live. These efforts
include making arrests, solving crimes and risking their own lives.
The August Police Officer of the Month was
sponsored by the following businesses: Banana Beach Resort, Graniel's,
Pauly's Pizza, Sweet Basil, The Palms and Victoria House.
Any business or individual wishing to
support this cause may do so by calling Marty at 226-3322. Any donations
will be greatly appreciated.
