Exceptional Police Initiative Commendation, Officer David Alfin, Officer Brian Elkin, Officer Sean Andrade and Officer Mark Guard
 

In late 2011 Officers’ Alfin, Elkin, Andrade and Guard were conducting unmarked surveillance in an effort to combat residential burglaries. During this time Officer Guard observed a suspicious vehicle and alerted the other officers. Officer Andrade observed the car backed into a residence. The officers focused their surveillance efforts on the vehicle. Shortly thereafter the vehicle left the residence allowing officers to call tag into dispatch. Dispatch confirmed that plate was registered to a Hertz rental vehicle. As Officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the driver began to make evasive maneuvers and eventually progressed to such a high rate of speed the officers terminated the pursuit. Officers later located the vehicle at the onramp to eastbound Interstate-595. After removing the four occupants from the vehicle, over $9,000 worth of stolen property was located in the vehicle as well as on the person of the arrestees. The property was identified as stolen from a home in Coral Springs and returned to the owner. The occupants of the vehicle were charged with burglary, grand theft and the driver was also charged with fleeing and eluding.
