Chief Tommy Wright of the Trenton Police Department has awarded the August 2016, Service Integrity Leadership Award (S.I.L. Award) to Sgt. Jeb Walker.
Sergeant Walker is recognized by his peer, Sergeant Larry Smith, for his hard work and dedication to the community of Trenton, the Trenton Police Department, his peers, and his subordinates.
Sergeant Walker was nominated for his commitment to volunteerism by serving on numerous boards, committees, and civic groups within the Trenton Community. His service above self is demonstrated through countless hours of volunteering and serving others within the community. Additionally, his passion and commitment to the Trenton Police Department are demonstrated by his high level of work ethic, as well as his years of service. His intense commitment to service of others demonstrates his dedication to making Trenton a safer and better place to live and raise a family.
The S.I. L. Award is a 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, Sgt. Walker will make a nomination for the award based on his observations of one of his peers who have gone over and above in one of those areas. That peer will then receive the same accolades as Walker did in August 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.
