BANGOR- The Bangor Police Department publicly honored a well deserving officer at Monday night’s council meeting.
Officer Jason McAmbley is the third recipient of the Don Winslow Community Service Award.
McAmbley is the departments Community Relations Officer and works closely with the public on a number of issues.
He says that the award is especially meaningful because Don Winslow was the chief who hired him when he began his career.
“To be brought up in the same breath as Don Winslow around here, it doesn’t get any better than that,” said Officer McAmbley.
Officer McAmbley says he was completely shocked that he received the award.
In a speech given by Chief Mark Hathaway, he says that Officer McAmbley was the obvious choice.
