Joshua Jones receives the Officer of the Month Award for October 2015. The Mobile Police Department honors Officer Jones, who works on the Criminal Apprehension Team in Precinct 2, for providing outstanding service to the City of Mobile.
His dedication to protect and serve is noted from his efforts to prevent criminal activity. Jones is recognized for locating a female suspect wanted by the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office for identity theft and by the Jackson Police Department for pawning a stolen gun from an auto burglary. During her arrest, Jones found that the suspect was forcing her 13-year-old daughter to perform sexual acts with subjects in exchange for drugs. Through this apprehension, the suspect was charged with Identity Theft and Receiving Stolen Property Second Degree as well as Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
Additionally, while patrolling the Tillman’s Corner area, Jones spotted a vehicle that matched the description of the one seen leaving a recent commercial robbery at Little Caesars on Grelot Road. He chased the suspect and was able to take him into custody.
Jones’ attention to detail and perseverance led him to make nine felony arrests, 16 misdemeanor arrests and 14 traffic citations in the month of October.
He joined the Mobile Police Department in 2012.
