Chief Tommy Wright of the Trenton Police Department has awarded the March 2016, Service Integrity Leadership Award (S.I.L. Award) to Officer Seth Rorebeck.
Officer Rorebeck is recognized by his peer, Officer Matt Preston, who nominated Rorebeck for the award.
The nomination stems from an incident in which Rorebeck was dispatched to a suicidal subject armed with a knife. Although the subject was armed and advanced towards Officer Rorebeck, he maintained his composure and was able to talk the subject into surrender without further incident. Chief Wright indicated that “Rorebeck’s calmness in the face of danger was exemplary and is to be commended.”
The S.I. L. Award is a new, peer nominated, award in which the recipient receives a “traveling trophy”, a Chief’s Letter of Commendation, and a gift certificate to a local restaurant. S.I.L. is an acronym for Service, Integrity and Leadership, which is part of the Trenton Police Department’s creed and mission. Wright states that next month, Officer Rorebeck will make a nomination for the award based on his observations of one of his peers who has went over and above in one of those areas. That peer will then receive the same accolades as Rorebeck did in March and will be responsible for the nomination for the next month.
Chief Wright encourages anyone who observes a Trenton Police Officer who goes over and above the call of duty to contact him so that the officer can receive recognition for it.Anyone having questions concerning the award is encouraged to contact the Trenton Police Department by calling 660-359-5557 or by emailing Chief Wright.
