Sgt. Jim Campbell was recently recognized as the Clinton Police Department’s 2012/2013 Officer of The Year. This is Campbell’s second “Officer of The Year” award, having also earned the honor in 2005.
Among several administrative duties, Campbell also serves as the CPD’s training coordinator. He has been with the department since 2003. Chief Rick Scarbrough presented the award to Campbell at the annual police “range day” celebration, held Thursday, Oct. 24.
The CPD’s “Top Guns” were also recognized during the first annual “range day” pistol competition. Most of the department’s full-time and reserve officers participated. The top five were:
- K9 Officer Steve Queener
- Sgt. Scott Gregory
- Officer John Gallups
- Lt. Larry Miller
- Reserve Officer Luke Hughes
The 2013 Range Day included the competition as well as a time for the officers and guests to visit and enjoy some good food and fellowship. Assistant Chief Vaughn Becker was the official grillmaster for the day and served up dozens of hamburgers and hot dogs.
Scarbrough said: “We had a good time and good friendly competition today. I’m proud of all the officers who competed and especially those who placed in the top five.”
