The 105th Precinct Community Council honored four police officers and a school safety officer
School Safety Officer Linden Mitchell, at top with Council President Rose Funderburk and Commanding Officer Dep. Insp. Michael Coyle, works at Campus Magnet High School. He was honored for his role in the arrest of a suspect in 13 armed robberies.
Detectives contacted him about someone who might have attended the school in recent years with a distinct tattoo.
Mitchell called back a few minutes later with a name that led to an arrest and the seizure of a handgun.
At center, Officer James St. Germain shared August Cop of the Month honors with Officer Joseph Fernandez, not present, for responding to an accident scene where one of the drivers allegedly threatened the other with a gun. The officers were credited with preventing a possible road rage shooting when they seized a .357 pistol from the man’s waistband.
Above, officers Glenn Olsen, left, and Justin Nash shared September honors for conducting routine traffic stop that turned into the seizure of a marijuana, other drugs, a 9 mm pistol and multiple knives.
