Police Chief William Martin had acknowledged the contributions of both Spangle and Gleason in comments included in the certificates.  In Martin’s absence from the meeting, Sgt. Rick Kanarr represented the Police Department at the meeting.

Byers spoke to the strong work ethic and commitment of Spangle saying, “As a valued member of our Police Reserve Program, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for going above and beyond in assisting your fellow officers within our department and our neighboring community.” Byers said that Spangle had volunteered to cover a midnight shift in Kosciusko County so police officers could attend the funeral of one of their officers who recently passed away. Byers added, “We appreciate your commitment towards our organization and your duty.”

In presenting a certificate to Gleason, Byers said, “Your dedication to our department and your fellow officers has made quite an impact.”  “In 2019, you gave 352 hours of service to our department. That averages out to 29 hours per month, when as a reserve, you are only required to serve 8 hours per month. We are very grateful to have you as a member of the Townof Bourbon Police Reserves.”
