[ARCHIVED] Officer Thomas N. Johnson, Sr. Awarded 2005 Officer of the Year

Officer of the Year

From May 2004 to May 2005, Officer Thomas Johnson lead the entire department in the number of traffic summonses issued at 321. He was second in the number of warrants served (163), misdemeanor arrests (86), and suspended drivers (45). None of the other top producing officers on the department rank higher in so many different areas of measured productivity. He accomplished this despite only working 11 months in patrol prior to transferring to the Colonial Narcotics Enforcement Task Force.

Officer Johnson is also a member the department’s SWAT Team and Honor Guard. He has been involved in several high-risk incidents and performs extremely well under stress. He received a Commendation for an incident in August where he, Officer Gary Stokes, and Officer Sterling Perry were confronted with a subject armed with 2 knives who talked as if he was considering putting the officers in a situation where they may have to shoot him. All of the officers in this case did an excellent job negotiating (face-to-face) with this individual and showed a great deal of restraint.

Officer Johnson is also well respected in the community and among other officers. He maintains an excellent attitude and will do anything that is asked of him without hesitation or complaint. His work ethic, calm demeanor, reliability and high degree of professionalism are an example to others. He distinguishes himself as a model police officer in every possible way and is worthy of the honor of James City County’s 2005 Police Officer of the Year.
