Canton's Firefighter, Policemen of the Year Named
The officers were recognized last month for their service to the community.
All public servants were nominated and chosen not only because of their professional accomplishments but their activities within the community, taking their personal time to better the Canton area.
The police department named several officers of the year, one for each division within the department:
Chris Evans - Traffic Investigator of the Year
Rodney Campbell - Detective of the Year
Jesse Ray - Officer of the Year
The Firefighter of the Year is Joe Ray.
Each of the above officers "exceeded the requirements expected of his or her position and has shown a distinct pattern of community service and professional achievement," according to a city press release.
Congratulations to all winning officers, and thanks to all of our public servants who work so hard to keep us safe!
