30-year police veteran Sergeant Mike Knox was named the Galena Park / Jacinto City Rotary Club’s Galena Park Police Department Officer of the Year for 2018. The GP/JC Rotary Club honored local law enforcement at their May 15 luncheon during National Police Week.
Galena Park P.D. Interim Chief Rick Gonzales cited Sgt. Knox’s leadership, hard work, knowledge of the community, and recent contributions to a recent homicide which led to the identification of a suspect, as contributing factors in Knox’s selection for the award.
This is Sgt. Knox’s second time to be awarded Officer of the Year.
