Ocrober 2018 - Police Cadet John Reid
Public Safety Employee of the Month - Police Cadet John Reid
I wish to extend my appreciation and congratulations to you on your nomination and selection as the Novi Public Safety Employee of the Month – October, 2018. You were nominated by Records Clerk Sue Hein and selected by the Public Safety Innovation Committee for your empathy, hard work, and professionalism in dealing with an elderly community member in need.
On October 9, 2018 an elderly woman came into the police department with an unusual problem that was not a police issue. She advised you that her electricity was shut off at her residence and provided you with a Consumers Energy gas bill which was not her electric bill. You could have advised her to contact her electrical provider, but went above and beyond your duties to assist her needs. You spent a considerable amount of time, after your shift had ended, to research the problem, speak with DTE energy, and ultimately get the power turned back on to her residence. Sue Hein advised that you were extremely patient with the citizen and even assisted her in getting back to her vehicle as she was moving slow with the use of a cane.
John, you are a positive asset to the City of Novi Police and Fire Team. Your thoughtfulness, professionalism, and positive attitude enhance the image of our agency. The full-time fire and police command officers and administrators congratulate you on being named Public Safety Employee of the Month – October, 2018.
