Congratulations to Champaign Police Officer, Dan Ward for being selected as the “2012 Officer of the Year.” Officer Ward was selected by a committee of his peers for exemplifying the the values of Service with Pride.
Officer Ward takes his job seriously, investigates his cases to the fullest possible extent, interacts with members of the community to solve South District problems and is involved in collateral duties at the police department, other than his patrol duties. He is very conscientious, hard working and dedicated to his job.
Dan is the definition of an excellent police officer. He is very thorough in his work, very professional in his dealings with CPD staff, other City employees and the community he serves. He cares about this community and does everything within his ability to do the best job he can on everything he does. Officer Ward is very deserving of the 2012 “Officer of the Year” award.
