[ARCHIVED] Master Officer Josh Drury Awarded 2015 Officer of the Year

Officer of the Year

Over the last year, Master Officer Josh Drury has continued to provide exemplary service to the citizens of James City County, while maintaining a level of excellence that should set the example for others to follow. He is an active member of the SWAT team, is a firearms instructor, and field training officer. He has been involved in several projects while maintaining a high degree of effectiveness while on patrol. One example of Officer Drury's accomplishments was researching and compiling all of the information for the purchase of the new Glock handguns. All of his recommendations - caliber gun, light, holster - were chosen and purchased. He also developed and administered (as lead instructor) the latest SWAT team tryout, with the organization and quality being praised by others. He developed a building clearing lesson plan that has been implemented by SWAT and will soon be implemented department-wide. Although a new firearms instructor, he implemented and taught a new training course on worst case scenarios which is being taught during in-service this year.

Officer Drury's strong work ethic and attention to detail also serves him well on patrol. He consistently leads his shift in marked areas of productivity. He has great respect from his peers and serves on the Patrol Officer Advisory Committee. He has begun training to be an assistant shift supervisor and is an active SWAT team leader. He also has a strong commitment to the community. For example, a local church donated 14 individual meals for Thanksgiving that would've otherwise gone to waste. He drove around and gave the food to citizens he knew that could use a decent meal.

Master Officer Josh Drury exemplifies the County's values of Integrity, Collaboration, Civility, Excellence, and Stewardship. He is the department's 2015 Officer of the Year.
