The Southern Pines Police Department’s Awards Committee met to consider peer and leadership team nominations for employees who performed in an exemplary manner during the second quarter of 2023.
The Southern Pines Police Department recognized the outstanding performance of Officer Thomas Raper, who has been named the Employee of the Quarter.
Raper was recognized by his supervisor for his proactive and self-initiated service of outstanding arrest warrants and other court processes.
Raper made time between other calls for service during his shifts to review outstanding court processes, and without having to be directed by a supervisor, took it upon himself to work on completing this task.
“Congratulations and a job well done to Officer Raper,” said Chief of Police Nick Polidori in a press release.
