Officer Kari Schneider, a 20 year veteran with the Huron Township Police Department, was awarded the first ever Employee of the Quarter award by Police Chief Everette Robbins on Thursday, April 2.
The award recognizes Huron Township Police Department employees who have provided exemplary service to the community or performed in a manner worthy of recognition.
The award was a result of a peer nomination and action by the Supervisory and Leadership Team of the Huron Township Police Department.
“This award is in recognition of your performance and professionalism,” said Robbins.
“It is also indicative of the effort you put forth on a daily basis to serve the community and support our mission to make a difference in the lives of others. I appreciate your dedication to the department and the community, as well as the manner in which you carry out your duties.”
In the first quarter of 2015, Schneider had been assigned on a part time basis in the Detective Bureau.
“Detective Lieutenant Leo Girard has been very impressed with your willingness to learn and believes that you have been a huge asset to the Detective Bureau throughout this time period,” he said.
The Huron Township Police Department holds high standards of core values which include professionalism, quality service, and community partnerships. Robbins noted that Schneider has been a positive role model to other officers due to her attitude, work ethic and mentoring capabilities in her role as a Field Training Officer.
Schneider also led the department in self initiated traffic activity, as well as being a Municipal Employees Retirement System (MERS) representative.
“…On behalf of the entire agency, please accept this award for your exemplary work during the first quarter of 2015. Your exceptional work performance reflects well upon us all,” Robbins said.
