Murray Williams has been awarded Holland Department of Public Safety 2019 Police Reserve Officer of the Year.
The award was given Tuesday night, Oct. 1, at the annual reserve banquet. Williams was nominated by his peers for his professionalism, dedication, consistency, and ability to relate well to others.
Williams has been a reserve for 10 years and has consistently taken on above average number of details, including working every Street Performers event for the entire season. He is known to relate extremely well to the public, and is always looking to better himself and the reserve unit as a whole.
Reserves assist with many functions such as parades, sporting events, parks patrol, community events in the parks and downtown, subpoena service, traffic control and prisoner watches, in addition to riding with full time officers monthly.
We at the Holland Department of Public Safety are thankful for Murray's 10 years of dedication to the police department and this community. We want to recognize our Reserve Officers dedication as a group, and specifically those who stand out, such as Reserve Williams.
