Tommy Parker | Officer of the Month | Commander's Appreciation
Tommy Parker Awards
Parker was an exceptional member of COPS 2 who served for many years
on the Board and is remembered for his dedication and hard work to
helping police officers in the 2nd District.
Upon his death, The Azby Fund, and friends of Tommy Parker established
a memorial fund for "Tommy Parker Awards" in order to recognize
the outstanding work of police officers in the 2nd District. The Tommy
Parker Awards are presented each quarter to the 2nd District's
Best Patrol Officer, Best DIU (Detective Investigative Unit) Officer,
and Best Reserve or Rank Officer.
At the end of the year, The Tommy
Parker Best of the Best is awarded to the officer who stands out among the best of the quarterly award
recipients in each category. The award recipients are determined by careful
evaluation of the supervisors and Commander of the 2nd District with input from COPS 2.
