The leadership of the City of Mountlake Terrace Police Department recognized three members of their staff earlier this week with the 2013 Presentation of Awards at the City Council’s Dec. 16 meeting.
Police Chief Greg Wilson awarded Officer Kat Brecht a Police Chief’s Citation for her work conducted for the 2013 Recreational Vehicle Survey. While on limited duty, Brecht also put together a training program on identity theft that was well received. Brecht’s husband, mother-in-law and new baby were in attendance as she received her award.
Sergeant Pat Lowe received a Police Chief’s Citation for his development and presentation of the Home Defense and Firearm Safety Seminar held quarterly. More than 200 people attended the seminars over the past two years. “I would like to recognize Sergeant Lowe for his contribution to police/community relations,” said Wilson.
Sergeant Kevin Pickard was awarded the 2013 Police Department Employee of the Year. “He has been a constant within the department; whatever assignment he has been given, he has taken a sincere interest in it,” said Chief Wilson. “I appreciate his willingness to take on those assignments and learn about them to the best of his ability.” Sergeant Pickard’s mom, wife and daughter were on hand as he received his award.
