November Officer of the Month

Posted: Updated:

Erie City Patrol Officer Michael Hertel is recognized as November's Officer of the Month, but if you ask him, there are plenty of officers that he works with who deserve this title.

"Just the stories that go on in this place, everyday you could do an officer of the day almost around here with the things that these men and women do everyday," said Hertel. "Its nice for me, but I'd also like to say thank you to everybody out there."

Patrolman Hertel has been with the force for nearly 13 years now, with the past 10 spent with the Quebec Unit, working with Public Housing.

First Assistant District Attorney Bob Sambroak and Erie Police Chief Steve Franklin both have seen first hand the work Patrolman Hertel has done with public housing.

"He's done an excellent job out there," said Chief Franklin. "He's one of the officers that proves what a success that partnership we have with the housing authority and how well that works."

"He just does a wonderful job," said Sambroak. "He's full of common sense. He knows the people, knows when to be tough, but knows when a heavy hand isn't really necessary."

Chief Franklin says that this Officer of the Month program just showcases the amount of work officers like Patrolman Hertel do for the community everyday.

"This is just one example of how we can display exactly what they are doing, and show that they are being recognized for the hard work they do. We want the public to know that they're committed to doing a good job for them."
