Selfless Dedication - Our Hero of the Month for July!
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 Sgt. Ruben Colon!
From the Savannah Police Department:
Sgt. Ruben Colon joined the Savannah Police Department in 2008 and is a supervisor in the Traffic Unit.
Sgt. Colon has selfless dedication to the profession of law enforcement, an engaging, positive attitude and a relentless spirit of servitude that has endured through a stellar career. He treats every day with the enthusiasm of a recruit and with a wisdom of tenure.
He works anything from a checkpoint to a fatality to a food distribution site with a smile and words of encouragement. He is often handed last minute assignments that he coordinates as smoothly as if he had been working on it for weeks. He is a wonderful example of a supervisor, truly caring for and mentoring the other officers in his unit. During the shooting death of Sgt. Kelvin Ansari in 2019, Sgt. Colon became a pillar of strength in a time of mourning for the officers around him.
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.
