2015 Officer of the Year Award – Casey Mittauer
It is an honor and a privilege to present Officer Casey Mittauer with the Officer of the Year Award for 2015.
Officer Mittauer attended the 193rd session of the Broward College Police Academy and graduated in 1999.
Officer Mittauer has spent his whole career assigned to the Road Patrol Division. The Road Patrol Divisions main responsibility is to respond to calls for service and to prevent and detect crimes that occur against the citizens and visitors to our city.
Officer Mittauer takes this responsibility to an extremely high level and with enthusiasm. There is a common saying in law enforcement that a great officer needs to be in the right place at the right time and Officer Mittauer does just that by always patrolling his assigned zone(s).
Officer Mittauer was awarded the Officer of the Month Award in July of 2015, March of 2014, July of 2012, June of 2006 and also nominated for the award in January of 2013. A review of these award write-ups reveals a pattern of a truly dedicated police officer. In several of the write-ups there is a common theme that Officer Mittauer has conducted proactive traffic stops on vehicles and also by vigilantly patrolling his assigned zone(s). Because of this tenacity, he has made citizen contacts which resulted in numerous arrests for criminal activity.
In addition to being awarded the Officer of the Month Award four times, Officer Mittauer was also the department’s second runner up for the Officer of the Year Award in 2013 and 2014.
It is in recognition of this that we bestow upon Officer Casey Mittauer, the Officer of the Year Award for 2015.
