Exceptional Police Initiative Commendation – Sgt. Scott Myers, Det. Dave Young, Det. Brian Koenig & Officer Jason Hosler
The above-mentioned officers while off-duty, took it upon themselves to search an area that they felt could possibly lead to the recovery of a missing person. Det. Brian Koenig spoke with Sgt. Scott Myers and Det. Dave Young about an interview with a witness who advised that the husband of the missing person was looking for his wife in a warehouse area located in Pompano. Sgt. Myers, and Det. Young searched the area on Saturday, while off-duty for signs of suspicious activity. They located an area of fence and bushes that surrounded the waterway that appeared to be knocked down and damaged possibly by a vehicle. Officer Koenig, who had a strong belief that the missing person’s vehicle could possibly be in the water, left and returned to the area with his boat and Officer Jason Hosler to search from the water. On Monday, Sgt. Scott Myers responded to the area and viewed the video of the suspicious damage to the fence and observed a vehicle being driven into the waterway. The Dive Team responded and located the vehicle and body of the missing person. This recovery furthered the investigation and led to the arrest of the victim’s husband. The actions of these officers showed outstanding initiative and dedication to a commitment of excellence.
