Carolyn Hoffman wins TPD’s integrity and leadership award for May

Chief Tommy Wright of the Trenton Police Department has awarded the May 2016 Service Integrity Leadership Award (SIL Award) to Communications Supervisor Carolyn Hoffman.

Hoffman is recognized by her peer, Lieutenant Rex Ross, for her 29 years outstanding service to the community of Trenton, the Trenton Police Department, and her peers.

Hoffman holds herself and her staff to the highest level of performance and excellence. For Hoffman, it must be right and she will accept nothing less. She is a team player that always goes above and beyond her call of duty. Her service above self is apparent and she routinely sacrifices personally to ensure that emergency communications duties are fulfilled. Hoffman is an asset to the City of Trenton.

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, Supervisor Hoffman will make a nomination for the award based on her observations of one of her peers who has went over and above in one of those areas. That peer will then receive the same accolades as Hoffman did in June 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 at [email protected].
