Johns Creek Police select 'Officer of the Quarter'

The Johns Creek Police "Officer of the Quarter" award is given to Corporal Mike Thomas for his exceptional work during the second quarter of 2010, announced Police Chief Ed Densmore today.

Thomas, a 34-year law enforcement veteran, was selected by his superiors and peers for his outstanding service as motors supervisor with the JCPD's Traffic Safety Unit.

"Mike is the consummate law enforcement officer," said Densmore. "His extensive experience, unquestionable integrity, and easy going manner greatly enhance the Traffic Safety Unit's effectiveness in the community. They don't come any finer than Mike Thomas."

A native of Cherokee County, Georgia, Thomas joined Johns Creek in 2008 with its Inaugural Squad. He previously served in uniform patrol and traffic for the Fulton County Police Department for 30 years, much of that time in the Johns Creek community before it was incorporated.

He began his law enforcement career as a Police Officer with the Cartersville, Georgia Police Department. He holds an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice and is a certified motorcycle, EVOC, and firearms instructor.

"I've been a police officer for many years," said Thomas. "To be here in Johns Creek, working with these outstanding law enforcement professionals at this time in my career, well I can't think of anyplace I'd rather be. I'm honored to receive this award, but I'm really honored to just come to work every day."
