Officer Mario Arzuaga Receives Officer of the Month Award for April 2014

April Officer of the Month honoree Officer Mario Arzuaga had an exceptional month of law enforcement and was recognized for his efforts during the June 2014 Special Council Presentation.

In the month of April, Officer Arzuaga made 18 arrests, issued 12 traffic citations and submitted 12 F.I. (Field Interview) cards; information gathered from someone out in the community that is later placed in a database that can be cross-referenced in the event of a crime. Furthermore, Officer Arzuaga was the primary unit dispatched for service and self-initiated extra security watches in neighborhoods and businesses totaling 165 primary calls for service and 116 calls for back up. While on patrol last April, Officer Arzuaga stopped a vehicle suspected in a string of robberies. While the vehicle proved not to have been the one in question, an arrest was made upon the driver for possessing upwards of 80 grams of marijuana.

“Officer Arzuaga is well-liked and respected by his peers and begins each tour of duty with a resolve to seek out crime and maintain the safety of our community,” said Mayor Porter. “His performance is professional and consistent and it is a great pleasure to award him with this honor. Congratulations on a job well done!”

Officer Mario Arzuaga, has been serving his community with the police department since 2007 when he was enlisted as a Code Compliance Officer. Wanting to expand his opportunities, he attended the police academy several years afterward and then volunteered his time and energies as a Reserve Officer for 2 years. In March 2012, Officer Arzuaga officially became a full-time officer and has been serving and protecting the citizens of Homestead ever since.
