PFC Ben Charnrissuragul has been selected as the Officer of the Month for May for the Sully District Police Station. He was honored at the June 14 meeting of the station’s Citizens Advisory Committee.
In nominating him for the award, 2nd Lt. Nick DiPippa explained why the officer deserves this recognition. He called Charnrissuragul “an impressive example of a hardworking, team player.”
“He is always early for his shift and quickly volunteers to help other officers without hesitation or question,” wrote DiPippa. “He never complains if he is held late and even volunteers for late cases to assist his fellow officers.”
DiPippa also praised Charnrissuragul for being an “excellent liaison” with other jurisdictions. “His patrol area borders with Loudoun County and, on several occasions, he has assisted them on calls for service,” wrote DiPippa. “He is very proactive in his assigned area and has made several, good drug arrests.”
Furthermore, wrote DiPippa, “Charnrissuragul did a great job during a pursuit he initiated. His radio traffic was calm and clear and he gave good updates to coordinate the responding units so they could be in a position to help stop the pursuit.”
Charnrissuragul then arrested the driver, charging him with DWI and driving on a revoked license, and also found drugs in the vehicle. So, wrote DiPippa, “It is a pleasure having PFC Ben Charnrissuragul serving in the Sully District, and he is well-deserving of the recognition as Officer of the Month.”
