Nantucket Police Recognize Member Achievements

nantucket police1NANTUCKET – Nantucket police recognized members of the department for their achievements last year at the Board of Selectmen’s meeting Wednesday night.

Detectives Thomas Clinger, a sergeant, Brett Morneau and Michael Cook were given Meritorious Service Awards, which are given for a highly unusual accomplishment.

They were recognized for their work in bringing a suspect in four sexual assault cases to prosecution. The investigation was highly complex and the cases dated back as far as 2008.

Exceptional Duty Awards went to dispatchers Patrick Considine and Matthew Sullivan for their work regarding a breaking and entering with an assault on Bartlett Road in September.

The dispatchers gathered the appropriate information while calming down the survivor of the assault. Their actions allowed officers to gather information and protect physical evidence that provided leads for detectives to close the case.

The Civilian Service Award was given to Jay D’Aprix, a member of the department’s “Volunteer in Policing” Corp. D’Aprix has been an active VIP member since 2013 and worked a total of 174 volunteer hours in 2015. He has also assisted with numerous community projects including a bicycle safety course at the Nantucket Elementary School and suicide prevention.
