The Juneau Police Department announced its annual awards this past weekend, honoring employees for their service and recognizing a few for their efforts in 2018.
Chief Ed Mercer and Deputy Chief David Campbell presented the awards, first honoring 11 employees who had reached milestones of five, 10, 15, 20 or 25 years of service at the department. They then honored four particular employees whose work stood out last year, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.
Patti Rumfelt, the administrative assistant to Mercer who also works in recruitment, was named the Civilian of the Year. Tonya Kurtz was the Dispatcher of the Year. Officer of the Year went to Officer Kirt Stage-Harvey, and Leader of the Year went to Lt. Krag Campbell.
