The Foley Police Department announced this week that Officer Mike Powers and Chief Communication Officer Shirley Mosley were selected as the department’s Officer and Public Servant of the Year.
According to a news release from the department, Powers joined the Foley Police Department in 2007. Prior to joining the Foley Police Department, he served in law enforcement for 15 years.
“(Powers) serves as a patrolman as well as a Field Training Officer,” the release reads. “In whatever tasks he undertakes, he displays professionalism, compassion, and extreme competence. There is one attribute in particular that Officer Powers displays, one that he displays day in and day out: his positive attitude.”
“I have always valued things in life that I have worked hard to achieve,” Powers said. “This is usually measured in results. As a police officer, I don’t always know the outcome of the work I do. However, I do find satisfaction in originating the effort and passing the baton. Removing danger from a home, the street and protecting my community is the beginning of a process that takes team work.”
Officer Powers’ selection as Officer of the Year reflects highly on his professional ability, exceptional performance, and dedication.
Mosley joined the Foley Police Department in 1996. In 2004, Mosley was promoted to Chief Communication Officer and she has been involved in the training of new communications officers and has provided input on creating new evaluation standards to ensure that personnel are trained adequately. In 2014, Mosley was awarded the Exceptional Service Award.
“Shirley has a positive attitude focused on providing superb police services and is a role model for others,” the release reads.
“Being chosen Public Servant Employee of the Year is such a special honor,” Mosley said. “The fact that this is an honor bestowed by my co-workers makes it even more special.”
Mosley’s selection as Public Service Employee of the Year displays her professionalism, performance, and dedication to the Foley Police Department and to the citizens of Foley.
