Exceptional Police Initiative Commendation – Officer Joseph Hubbard
 
On January 29, 2010, while exiting his home in Pembroke Pines to come to work, Officer Hubbard heard a vehicle car alarm go off in the area. He took initiative to check out the alarm. While driving to the area of the alarm, he observed 2 subjects running away from a vehicle parked inside the garage of a residence. The two subjects then entered a silver, Honda Civic parked in front of the residence where the audible alarm was coming from. Two additional subjects were also in the vehicle. Upon seeing officer Hubbard in his Patrol Car, the subjects fled the residence in the Honda Civic at a high rate of speed. Officer Hubbard followed the suspects while making contact with the Pembroke Pines Police Department. Officer Hubbard was able to catch the vehicle due to the community gate, which was down. Officer Hubbard initiated a traffic stop and waited for Pembroke Pines Police to arrive. Officer Hubbard escorted the Pembroke Pines officer to the scene, where contact was made with the homeowner who was home during the incident but was unaware of the burglary. The homeowner then checked the vehicle and identified that a GPS Unit as well as currency were missing. Officer Hubbard was able to recover all of the victim’s stolen items at the scene of the traffic stop. Officer Hubbard could have easily disregarded the car alarm he heard while departing for work on that day. Instead, he took the initiative to investigate further. As a result of Officer Hubbard’s intuition and alertness, 4 subjects were arrested for an occupied residential burglary and vehicle burglary. It is for these actions Officer Hubbard is being awarded the Exceptional Police Initiative Commendation.
