Public Safety Employee of the Month

Public Safety Employee of the Month


August 2020 - Officer Timothy Shea

Due to your diligence, determination, and dedication to the citizens of Novi and the Novi Public Safety personnel, you were selected as the Employee of the Month - August 2020. Sergeant Robert Manar and Sergeant Mark Boody, who both recognized your efforts, nominated you.
You demonstrated exemplary investigative skills on the scene of an attempted armed robbery at a local jewelry store. After reviewing the store CCTV, you located a spot on the glass display case where the suspect may have left fingerprints. Utilizing your evidence technician training, you were able to lift what appeared to be a viable fingerprint from the display case. Additionally, you reviewed mall CCTV and backtracked the suspect to a unique vehicle in the parking lot. Armed with specific information, you collaborated with Detective Marchetti and the two of you were able to develop a potential suspect. The detective bureau continued to work the case and follow- up on leads that resulted in the arrest of the subject. Subsequent interviews resulted in clearing of multiple robberies in the area.
On August 10th, you responded to a drug overdose death investigation. Seizing a learning opportunity, you walked Officer McGee, who was still in the FTO program, through the steps required to properly investigate a death scene. You collected suspected narcotics from the scene that were tested in the lab and found to be a mixture of Fentanyl and Heroin. You showed Officer McGee the proper way of processing the scene, collecting suspected narcotics and making notifications. You educated and demonstrated how to build a solid foundation for police investigations. This case is still under examination in an attempt to identify the supplier of the narcotics, which would not have been possible if not for your excellent police work.
On August 1, 2020, you responded to a home invasion / UDAA on Irvine Street where you were asked to process the scene. Once again, you took this opportunity to show Officer McGee proper protocol for processing a home investigation. You collected latent prints and collected video footage of the suspect. You then entered the vehicle in as stolen through LEIN and put out a BOL. As a result, this vehicle was located in the City of Eastpointe.
For your efforts and commitment to serving the Novi community, putting forth maximum effort on all of your calls for service, as well as mentoring younger officers, you are recognized as the Public Safety Employee of the month, congratulations!
