MOUNT VERNON — Sgt. Troy Glazier was recognized this morning by the Mount Vernon Police Department with the Thomas Bartlett Award, based on his “commitment to the department and his work ethic” in 2013, according to the voting ballot.
This honor is awarded within the department each year, voted on by department staff members, for the recipient’s performance and conduct for the previous year.
Glazier joined the MVPD in April 1990. He received the award previously in 1993 and 2000 and has been head of the Emergency Services Unit. He currently works as sergeant on the night shift and has stepped in as acting chief in the absence of interim chief George Hartz.
“Troy works hard every day he’s here and has a good nose for law enforcement and a good head on his shoulders where the job is concerned,” said interim chief Capt. George Hartz of Glazier. “His officers on his shift, and other shifts, respect his opinion and look up to him.”
“This means a lot. Although this is my third time to receive the award, it does not diminish it,” said Glazier. “It means a lot coming from the guys.”
