Over the last year, Senior Officer Prasit “Nuey” Niranont (pronounced knee-ra-noon) has assumed a key role on Day Shift and within the Police Department. On a routine basis, he is above the shift averages in productivity. During the course of this year, he currently holds an exceptional 52% clearance rate in case files that he has been assigned - in addition, he has been assigned more cases than any other officer on the shift. On a daily basis, Senior Officer Niranont brings a professional attitude to work and is an example of what a James City County Police Officer should be.
More important are the contributions that he makes above what is expected of an officer. He is a member of the Department’s SWAT Team, a defensive tactics instructor, ASP instructor, and a Field Training Officer. While he is one of many that hold these certifications, he is one of a few that routinely accept assignments utilizing this training. He has assisted with the in-house training and post-academy training of newly hired recruits. Senior Officer Niranont is also an assistant shift supervisor in the absence of the shift Lieutenant/Sergeant. He currently is assisting with the implementation of the Mobile Field Reporting system.
Senior Officer Niranont has, for the last several years, volunteered his time to assist the Community Services Unit with National Night Out, acting as McGruff, and helping with weekend functions. He also assists with recruitment in training by attending job fairs and career days throughout the area. Moreover, Senior Officer Niranont performs all of these tasks while attending college on his own time. For these and many other reasons, Senior Officer Prasit Niranont is named the 2006 Officer of the Year.
