January 2020 - Patrol Officer Matthew Chylaszek and Patrol Officer Jacob Roberts
Patrol Officer Matthew Chylaszek
Patrol Officer Jacob Roberts
Due to your effort, determination, and comprehensive investigation, I want to thank and congratulate you both on your selection as the January 2020 Novi Public Safety Employees of the Month. You were both nominated by Sergeant Edgar for your work in response to a residential complaint, which lead to the identification of a subject who was actively disturbing peace in our community.
On January 22, 2020, you responded to a dispatched call of a subject possibly peeping in bedroom windows. After speaking to the complainant, you both continued to investigate and search the area for the suspect. Once seeing the suspect drive away from the area, Officer Roberts was able to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle. After continuing to interview the suspect and matching his wet boots to the footprints by the complainant’s window, you, along with Officer Chylaszek, were able to get a confession that he was in fact window peeping at sleeping residents. As a result of your work, charges were issued on the suspect, who is repeat offender.
Your response and subsequent follow-up embody what the citizens of our community expect from their police officers. The men and women of the Novi Police and Fire Departments commend you both on the outstanding job you did in locating the subject and obtaining a confession. Through your work, you collectively helped ensure that Novi residents live without fear or worry of such suspects disturbing our community. Congratulations to you both on being named as the January 2020 Public Safety Employees of the Month.
