The Pearland Police Department is proud to announce the 2016 recipient of this prestigious award is Officer Robert Paquette.

Officer Paquette received the award on Tuesday, November 1, 2015 at the presentation ceremony held at Golfcrest Country Club. The award citation recognized Officer Paquette for his outstanding investigation into a major credit card abuse ring and his willingness to become personally involved in the care for a transient found in need of medical care. In that case Officer Paquette obtained the needed medical care for the male and even took up a collection from officers to purchase basic toiletries for the male.
