While off-duty and in his personal vehicle, Officer Crawford observed a vehicle which he believed he saw in a BOLO issued by Lighthouse Point Police Department in reference to a “Sovereign Citizen”. The BOLO indicated that the suspect had outstanding charges and was known to carry a 9MM pistol mounted under the vehicle steering column. Officer Crawford contacted CSPD Dispatch and requested officers to investigate while he continued to conduct visual surveillance on the vehicle. While apprehension could not be made at the point our officers made contact as charges had been filed by Lighthouse Point PD but a warrant had not yet been issued, valuable intelligence was documented and provided to Lighthouse Point PD to aid in their investigation. Officer Crawford demonstrated keen awareness and initiative at a time he was not expected to do so. It is for this reason he is receiving the Exceptional Police Initiative Award.
