Troy was honored by his peers and supervisors for his dedication and efforts throughout this last year with the APOA as well as his quality investigations resulting in many follow-up arrests in the Detective Bureau. Troy has about 11 years experience as a police officer having lateraled to APD some years ago.

John is two-time recipient of the Civilian Employee of the Year award, being honored previously in 2004. John is a contract maintenance employee who works tirelessly for our Department. John handles just about any task at hand and makes himself available to all of our staff. Not only does he work at APD, but he also volunteers his time as a VIP and translator.

Both of these awards are well deserved and the members of the APOA congratulate both Troy Hernandez and John Lo.
