Fort Worth Police Officer Landon Rollins was named Officer of the Year for 2017 at the 66th annual awards dinner hosted by the Fort Worth Police Foundation.

Officer Rollins, with more than 15 years of experience, provides support and guidance for younger and less-tenured officers. He is a shining example of excellence in the Fort Worth Police Department, going above and beyond the call of duty to keep Fort Worth safe.

In August, Rollins transferred to the newly-created Crisis Intervention Team (CIT). As a founding officer of the unit, Rollins was key in molding the CIT into a critical asset to the department.

Rollins consistently leads by example. In July 2017, he located an armed carjacking suspect who was wearing body armor. The carjacker attempted to assault an uninvolved resident during an intense pursuit. However, Rollins continued to pursue and eventually apprehended the dangerous suspect without anyone being injured.

In September 2017, a man was on a bridge getting ready to jump. Rollins was successful in talking the individual down from the bridge.

In addition to being an inspiration to peers, Rollins is also an active member of the military and assists those in need by working with Veterans Outreach. He has a Master Peace Officer’s license, a civilian associate’s degree and is certified as a Mental Health Peace Officer.

Other award winners: Central Northwest Command: Officer Michael Byrd.
Southeast Command: Officer Heidi Plummer.
Specialized Units: Officer Domingo Martinez.
Supervisor of the Year: Sgt. Neil Harris.
Commander of the Year: Commander Michael Shedd.
Dwayne Freeto Service With Respect Award: Sgt. Clay Hendrix.

Platinum sponsors of the event were the Robert S. & Joyce Pate Capper Charitable Foundation, Karen and Larry Anfin, BNSF Railway, R4 Foundation, The Miles Foundation, QuikTrip Corp. and Pavlov Agency.
