According to Jemmott, Tush is a dedicated and hardworking police officer. “Since my arrival, I have noticed that PC Tush is a strong leader. He has always been in the running for the officer of the month award, but this month he surpassed all the other officers and proved that he was truly worthy of this award. Not only did he conduct the highest number of arrests but he also had the highest level of drug interdiction,” said Jemmott. PC Tosh is a committed officer that is willing to work at any time of the day. “PC Tush is dependable. He has never complained about extra work given to him. He is one of the persons that I can rely on and call at any time. He has worked with the QRT to improve their relationship with the community. For these and many more reasons he deserves the award,” said Jemmott.
