This Wednesday, Anderson Police Officer Shad Grile was presented with the 2015 Officer of the Year award by the Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police. The prestigious award speaks to his momentous achievements and the positive community impact derived from his efforts. The City of Anderson and the Anderson Police Department are proud to congratulate Officer Grile, and appreciate his continued leadership in our community.

On July 3, 2015, Officer Grile faced an armed and dangerous man suspected of shooting two people in the Meadowbrook neighborhood. Officer Grile was placed in a situation were he had to return fire on the armed suspect in order to preserve life and end the threat.

Officer Grile and his family quickly developed a friendship with the shooting victim once learning of the financial stress caused by his injuries. Until the victim was able to return to work, Officer Grile began personally providing for the financial needs of the victim and his family. It became a family effort when Officer Griles's daughter operated a lemonade stand to collect money in support of the victim.

APD Chief Watters said, "It is a true honor and privilege to present Officer Grile with this award and I thank him for representing us well."

Also being recognized that day were two other APD members who had successfully completed the the Police Executive Leadership Academy training: Lieutenant Amber Miller-Saxhaug and Sergeant Freddie Tevis.
