CLAYTON — Officer Bryan Camden was recognized July 16 at the City of Clayton council meeting for his role in apprehending a suspect that robbed MainSource Bank on April 22.
Camden responded to the robbery in progress and observed the suspect’s vehicle fleeing the bank down W. Greenview Drive and was able to make a traffic stop. Following an investigation and a subsequent interview of the driver, two suspects were identified and charged for the robbery.
“Officer Camden’s teamwork was instrumental in the successful arrest and prosecution of that suspect,” said Police Chief Matt Hamlin. “Quality, professional work is the standard expected of all Clayton officers. However, the quickness in which the case developed and the arrest of the suspect within a very short period of time is above any anticipated standard and deserves special recognition tonight. It is with great pleasure that I present this letter of merit.”
Officer Jack Daugherty was also recognized. On May 28 he received the South Community Behavioral Healthcare Award for his work as a Student Resource Officer at Northmont High School. On June 30 he also received Ohio School Resource Officer Association’s ‘Officer of the Year’ award.
“Quality, professional work is the standard here expected of all Clayton officers. However, Officer Jack Daugherty far exceeds the expectations of staff, and possesses characteristics that epitomize what a School Resource officer should be,” Hamlin said. “He was more than merely a presence in our high school. Officer Daugherty knew the students and staff, was always available for their needs, and attended all school functions whether it was weekends or evenings. Officer Daugherty served as our very first full-time Student Resource Officer and has set the standard very high for future Student Resource Officers. It is with great pride that I present this letter of merit to Jack.”
