Two Gaylord Troopers Recognized for Outstanding Efforts
Two Gaylord MSP Troopers were recently recognized for outstanding patrol and investigative efforts.
Troopers Jacob Gillis and Brock Artfitch of the Gaylord Post are recipients of the 2017 Cpl. Samuel A. Mapes Criminal Patrol and Investigation Award.
Corporal Mapes, an early pioneer in criminal patrol and investigation, was killed in the line of duty during the prohibition era.
The annual award honors the top five percent of troopers in each district for looking “past the traffic stop” to excel in proactive criminal patrol and criminal investigations closed by felony arrests.
The troopers were recognized at a ceremony in Lansing on Wednesday.
