Pictured is Joe Michalek as Officer of the Month for September and on the right is his Supervisor Jeff Noe. During a time when other officers required time off to meet their military obligations, Joe worked as the day shift dispatcher. Previous to this, Joe had very little raining and knowledge of the dispatch operations but came to me with confidence requesting to fill the position in the other Officers absence. During those two weeks, Officer Michalek took it upon himself to learn the position as well as other duties he was tasked with by either myself and mall management. Officer Michalek is a team player who is always willing to help out and go that extra mile and never turns down an assignment. He is dedicated to his job and always strives to do his very best while on duty. He mastered the dispatch position during this time and did an excellent job without fail. It is with great pleasure that we recognize Joe for his hard work and efforts during this time. We appreciate everything you and congratulations on receiving Officer of the month. Keep up the good work.

Pictured here from our Knoxville office is Security officer John Bell. Mr. Bell went above and beyond the call of duty to assist a Margaritaville customer in locating and I pad left by there by their small child. John tracked down some construction workers, located and returned the item and refused to accept a monetary gift that was offered by the parents of the child. Below is the letter we received:
"Dear Mr. Saylor, I just wanted to write you to let you know that one of your officers went above and beyond to help me and my husband find my sons iPad yesterday. His name is John, and he was so nice and helpful, and we appreciate it so very much!! We went to have dinner at Margaritaville this past Tuesday night when my son, Drew, saw a atv-like vehicle in the parking lot and wanted his picture taken on it. Well, in the process, left his iPad on the seat. We live in Knoxville and didn't even notice it was missing until the next morning. I got the Island security number and talked to John. He took the time to listen to me, then took off looking for the vehicle! My husband then called to check in with him and he said the vehicle was gone, but he would ask the construction crew. Thirty minutes later he called my husband back and said he had the iPad!! We were so relieved! When he went to pick it up my husband tried to pay John, but he would not accept it. We wanted to do something for him as a thank you, because he could've just thrown his hands up, but he didn't. That's why I'm writing you...these days it's a blessing to come across an honest person willing to help out a stranger. We were blessed and I hope John will be, too. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Amy"
Amy thank you for sharing and John thank you for going above and beyond and assisting in insuring our customer customers are happy and congratulations on being July officer of the month.

This is the letter received by mall management:
"On behalf of B.T Management, we would also like to express our appreciation for Jessica’s relentless efforts in providing a safe and customer friendly environment here at Northway Mall. On June 3, 2014, Officer Jessica Jeans clearly went above the call of duty. Officer Jeans was called to the male restroom by one of the Maintenance Team members, regarding a male passed out in the restroom. When Officer Jeans arrived she observed there was blood on the floor where the 6’4”, 250-lb male had fallen and hit his head on the floor. Surveying the scene carefully, and noticing the blood on the floor, Officer Jeans put on rubber gloves before attending to the man. EMS was on the phone and Officer Jon Paul arrived to assist Officer Jeans. The male was rolled over, and Officer Jeans ascertained that when he passed out he fell and hit his head on the floor. A needle and bent spoon were in the stall. The man was not breathing and EMS instructed Officer Jeans to begin and maintain chest compressions until they arrive on the scene. Officer Jeans is a 5’4” track star well-known in the area. Handling a person that much larger than her was a difficult task at best, but she maintained the chest compressions. The EMS Supervisor was very impressed with how Officer Jeans handled the event and stated that she saved this man’s life by her quick thinking, professional and calm demeanor, and tenacity in staying with the chest compressions."
