Public Safety Employee of the Month - Sergeant/Training and Standards Brian K. Woloski
I wish to extend my appreciation and congratulations to you on your nomination and selection as the Novi Public Safety Employee of the Month -August 2018. You were nominated by Assistant Chief Scott Baetens and selected by the Public Safety Innovation Committee for the work ethic you demonstrated during the annual on-line CALEA assessment as well as your flexibility during the subsequent homicide investigation that occurred the second week of August - 2018.
You have done an outstanding job displaying leadership, determination, and fortitude throughout a very demanding week. As the accreditation manger, you spearheaded the online assessment and relentlessly completed all the requirements. According to the CALEA Compliance Service Member "Sergeant Woloski's hard work was evident when auditing the files, written directives, and proofs. The organization and presentation of the documents reviewed was exceptional, which made the review a pleasurable experience. Novi was well prepared and the quality of the files was extraordinary. It was a great to work with your agency on this CALEA Annual Review." In addition to this year's assessment being your first you were the acting Detective Sergeant supervising a homicide investigation. The investigation continued throughout the day and night, operating on very little sleep you coordinated our Investigation Section response with the local, state, and federal partners. The person of interest in that investigation was ultimately arrested and confessed to his involvement in the pre-meditated killing of his girlfriend. Although the week was extremely challenging, you remained level-headed and professional. We are fortunate to have you on our team, not only to ensure we follow the best practices in the profession of law enforcement, but to rely on your investigative leadership and guidance.
You are a positive asset to the City of Novi Public Safety team, your hard work, attention to detail, and determination culminated in a successful CALEA reaccreditation as well as a professional and steadfast management of the Detective Bureau during the homicide investigation. The full-time fire and police command officers and administrators congratulate you on being named Public Safety Employee of the Month for August 2018.
