Police department recognizes their own

By JOE R. BOWLING, JR.

Tuesday night during the Port Isabel City Com­mission Meeting four of­ficers were recognized for their efforts as Chief Gual­berto Gonzalez handed out awards to Cesar Garcia, Sergeant Javier Vivero, Monica Garza and David Martinez. Each of the four were recognized for do­ing their part to assist in the daily operations of the department and city offi­cials across the board sang their praises as they were brought forward.

Garcia received recog­nition as the Dispatcher of the Year. A position that City Commissioner JJ Zamora, Sr. called “the backbone of the force”. Chief Gonzales took the time to thank Garcia for the hard work but also gave thanks for the dedica­tion of sticking with the de­partment despite offers from other areas.

“He is very good at what he does,” said Gonzales, “and as a result of that there are offers that he has received to move away. Because he has stayed since 2008 we are much more efficient with someone that is familiar with what we do here.”
