Det. Jason Linder is "Officer of the Year"
Police Detective Jason Linder, a member of the Department's Investigative Services Division which has handled several high profile cases over the last few months, has been named "Officer of the Year."
The East Carolina University graduate "has always been reliable," said Chief Glen Allen.
"The commitment that Detective Linder has shown to his community, the victims of crime and the overall quality of his work have earned this 12-year veteran officer the honor of being named Clayton PD’s Officer of the Year for 2012," the Chief said. "He has been very active with the Clayton Police Department both on and off duty. For the past 6 years he has served as a member of the department’s Selective Enforcement Team (SET) and has participated yearly in the Special Olympics Torch Run events, as well as represented the department in local softball and basketball fundraising events."
Linder, who holds an Advanced Law Enforcement Certification from the North Carolina Criminal Justice Training and Standards Commission, began his career with the Kinston Police Department in 2000, then joined the Clayton Department in 2004.
