VANDALIA — The Vandalia Division of Police recently recognized its employee and officer of the year.
Detective Jennifer Chiles was named the Officer of the Year for 2015 and Public Safety Specialist Deborah Wright was named the Civilian Employee of the Year.
“These individuals are both very talented professionals,” said Vandalia Police Chief Douglas Knight. “They perform their duties extraordinarily well and have the admiration of the Police Chief, Command Staff, and their peers.”
Nominations for the awards are received from co-workers and supervisors and then considered by a committee made up of a cross-section of the department. Their recommendation is then forwarded to Knight for final approval.
