Mayor Jeff Porter Presents Officer Anthony Green with Officer of the Month Award

During a Special Council Presentation that took place on April 23, Officer Anthony Green of the Homestead Police Department earned the Officer of the Month award for his exemplary service in the line of duty during the month of February 2014. Major Scott Kennedy began the proceedings with some words about this special civil servant.

“Officer Green has been a member of our department for 24 years ever since he first came to us as a Police Explorer back in 1990. In 1993, he was hired as a civilian dispatcher and a year later, he began his full-time employment as a full-fledged police officer. Twelve of those years, he worked in the K-9 Unit and another eight years as a field-training officer. He is a motivated, diligent officer that always has a smile to share and I’m so very proud of him.”

In the month of February, Officer Green was recognized for his handling of 220 calls, 68 back-up calls to aid his fellow officers, 11 arrests and 25 police reports. Of note, was his discovery of a marijuana grow house while on routine neighborhood patrol that led to arrests and the seizure of 37 plants with an estimated street value of 98 thousand dollars.

Mayor Porter also had some parting words for Officer Green. “We’ve all heard the saying ‘The Best of the Best.’ This officer embodies that sentiment. With gratitude, we thank you for your distinguished service above and beyond the call of duty.”
