Last month, the East Cobb Business Association sponsored the second annual East Cobb Public Safety Appreciation Celebration for Precinct 4’s police and personnel. A highlight of the evening was the presentation of Officers of the Year awards presented by Precinct 4’s Captain Jerry Quan and Kim Paris, Community Outreach Coordinator, WellStar. Congratulations to today’s featured officer!
RYAN C. STILZ
PRECINCT 4 OFFICER OF THE YEAR, EVENING SHIFT
Ryan Stilz was hired by the Cobb County Police Department in May 2011. Officer Stilz is the consummate professional. While still a young officer himself, he has taken a lead role on the shift and the newer officers frequently ask him for advice.
Officer Stilz has taken a role as a team member. He maintains a positive, upbeat attitude, which helps motivate the other officers on the shift. He consistently stays late and assists other shift members processing their evidence and paperwork. Officer Stilz has worked his off days when the precinct needed the manpower.
Officer Stilz demonstrated his commitment to both the public and his fellow coworkers when the metro area had been hit with ice storms which resulted in closed roadways and the issuance of a state of emergency by the Governor. Officer Stilz, during reacherous conditions, made his way to the Precinct 4 headquarters and picked up fellow officers along the way. Officer Stilz should be commended for his hard work and commitment to his co-workers and the citizens of Cobb County.
