The Prescott Valley Police Department on Friday, June 4, honored its outstanding officers and civilian staff during a banquet at the Findlay Toyota Center. The following recognitions were given during the evening.
Officer of the Year (Police Meritorious Service Ribbon): Cameron Loughmiller
The Police Meritorious Service Ribbon is designed for the recognition of a sworn officer and is awarded for sustained long term, noteworthy achievement through the calendar year. Officer Cameron Loughmiller, a six-year officer, has served with the patrol division, the department SWAT Team, and most recently the Drug Enforcement Unit.
Over the past year, Officer Loughmiller refined his skills as an officer and took every opportunity to work alongside other officers who were more experienced in illegal drug activity. He has made numerous traffic stops, looking for narcotics, searching for drugs and building information to assist area PANT detectives in their investigations. Officer Loughmiller is also a member of the PVPD SWAT Team.
Recently, the department developed a new Drug enforcement Unit (DEU). Officer Loughmiller tested and was selected for the position. In 2020, Cameron completed 60 citations, 4 DUIs, responded to 862 calls for service resulting in 53 arrests, and received three commendations.
