Police Services Aide receives Chief's Challenge Coin
Submitted By Newark PD
This coin is given to individuals who consistently perform at exemplary levels or rise above with a single act of excellence. PSA Parks was hired in 2010 and has always shown an interest in our K9 unit and has attended nearly every scheduled Tri-City K9 training session on his own time. As he became more involved in the program, he aspired to become our first non-sworn canine agitator. He not only achieved that goal, but he has since attended a Peace Officers Standards and Training certified canine agitator school so he could work with dogs from other agencies as well. He also volunteered to assist with in-house training, Citizen Police Academy sessions, and department briefing trainings. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to our K9 unit, as well as the department.
