Responding to 130 calls for service and 21 requests for assistance last month, 11-year veteran Demetrius Watts secured his place as Mobile Police Department’s Officer of Month for April.
In a release making the announcement, Watts is described as “an officer who goes the extra distance to work a call.”“Watts hones in on the location of suspects during burglaries using a knock and talk investigative technique,” the release reads. “He works diligently with complainants to resolve disputes and assists his fellow officers with crime suppression efforts throughout the third precinct.”
For the month, Watts recorded six felony arrests, 30 misdemeanor arrests and five traffic citations.
Since he joined the department in 2005, Watts has held positions in the ranger unit and crime detail and continues to train probationary officers new to the force.
Watts will be recognized at the Officer of the Month Luncheon, which is regularly sponsored by the Midtown Optimist Club. The luncheon will be held at Azalea Golf Course Club at noon on May 10.
