The Johns Creek Police "Officer of the Quarter" award has been given to Officer Tyler Seymour for his outstanding contributions to the law enforcement agency during the 1st quarter of 2012, announced Police Chief Ed Densmore on Tuesday.
“Officer Seymour far surpassed all expectations as a rookie in the department, quickly becoming a leader and example to others in his squad,” said Densmore. “He’s consistently diligent in his work and service and exerts a strong effort to making Johns Creek a safe community. He’s got a great future in law enforcement.”
A patrol officer with Squad D on the night shift, Seymour joined the JCPD in April 2011. He is the first JCPD officer to join the department after first getting acquainted with the department and its operations through being a member of the 2009 Johns Creek Citizens Police Academy.
“To be recognized in this way, having taken the path I did to get here, is pretty amazing,” said Seymour. "I can’t imagine a better place to begin my law enforcement career and I’m very grateful for the support I receive from my peers, supervisors and the community.”
A native of Franklin, Tenn., Seymour graduated from Centennial High School in Franklin, and holds a B.S. degree from Western Kentucky University. He graduated in the top of his class from the Georgia Police Academy in July 2001.
In addition to his patrol duties, Seymour is also a certified instructor with radKIDS®, the JCPD’s kids safety community service program.
