OFFICER OF THE QUARTER | OCTOBER 2019 – JANUARY 2020:
OFFICER RICHARD PECK
On January 10, 2020, the Lieutenants and Sergeants of the Patrol Division met and after careful deliberation, unanimously nominated Officer Richard W. Peck as their choice for Officer of the Quarter (OOQ) for the duty period of October 15, 2019 – January 14 2020.
On February 12, 2020, at a meeting of the Board of Police Commissioners, Officer Peck was formally recognized as the Officer of the Quarter until April 14, 2019.
Among the many traits they identified was his professionalism, positive attitude, pleasant demeanor, strong work ethic, investigative skills and self-initiated activity. His specific accomplishments include the arrest of a suspect in a series of indecent exposure incidents, an arrest in a check fraud and identity theft case and the apprehension of a burglar despite the minimal suspect information available at the time.
Officer Peck sets an example for others to follow and has earned the confidence and trust of his supervisors. His hard work and dedication reflect great credit upon himself, our profession, and the Fairfield Police Department. As a result, he is most deserving of the Officer of the Quarter award.
