Competence and Community - Our Honoree for September!
Renfroe Outdoor, in conjunction with the Savannah Police Department, is proud to announce our newest honoree in the Savannah Heroes program! Each month, we will highlight a member of the local police force on our extensive digital billboard network for their outstanding work in serving and improving our communities.
This month we are proud to spotlight APO Darren Bradshaw!
From the Savannah Police Department:
APO Darren Bradshaw joined the Savannah Police Department in 2016 and is currently assigned to the Central Precinct. In addition to being a patrol officer, he is a certified Crisis Intervention Team officer and has taken up the position of acting supervisor on occasions as needed.
His supervisors said he is known for his constant and frequent engagement with the community. He is an officer who gets out of his police car, walks his areas and speaks to the residents to learn about them, their families and their concerns. Residents feel safer knowing APO Bradshaw is on patrol and trusting him as an officer. He is constantly giving tips and advice to younger officers on ways to also engage with the community, the benefits of it, and how to spot when criminal activity may be afoot.
Just recently he had success when he used department technology to locate and recover an occupied stolen U-Haul, resulting in the arrest of the driver and passenger. The driver was a repeat and prolific thief in the city of Savannah. His police work likely resulted in the prevention of countless other crimes. Just weeks later he had another successful case when he used department technology to recover yet another occupied stolen vehicle. The driver in that case was arrested for multiple felony charges, including the possession of heroin, methamphetamine and ecstasy. In addition to his work at SPD, he is also a sergeant in the U.S. Army Aviation Unit.
About the initiative:
Renfroe Outdoor is proud to partner with the Savannah Police Department in an initiative to honor our local heroes. Each month, this program will highlight an outstanding officer in our community chosen by the Savannah PD and recognize them across town with our digital billboard network.
It is of the opinion of the management of Renfroe Outdoor that most media outlets are too eager to cover the wrong stories relating to the police. While all public officials should be held accountable for their actions, there are far more positives that can be said about the local police than the negative. With this program, Renfroe Outdoor hopes to help foster a growing positive relationship between our citizens and the men and women who put themselves in danger to protect them each day.
