The Holland Department of Public Safety is pleased to announce Reserve Officer Jason Trott as our Reserve Officer of the Year. Chief Matt Messer made the announcement during the annual reserve award ceremony. Reserve Officer Trott will represent the Holland Police Reserve Unit at various functions throughout the year.
Reserve Officer Trott was nominated for this prestigious award by his peers. Some of the reasons cited for him being nominated included that he is “committed to the Reserve Unit and the community” and that he is “easy to communicate with and definitely a team player”. Also noted in the nominations was the fact he recently received a department life-saving award for a successful save when he performed CPR on an individual who collapsed while at the City of Holland Farmers Market.
Reserve Officer Trott has been with the department since 2019. He is employed by Crown Forklift in Kentwood and lives in Zeeland with his wife.
The Holland Department of Public Safety is grateful for the dedication displayed over the years by Officer Trott and he is to be commended for receiving this award.
