On April 4, the American Legion Post 180 in Vienna held its annual ceremony and banquet dinner to honor their 2017 Town of Vienna “Police Officer of the Year.” This year’s recipient was Officer Ara Post. Officer Post joined the Vienna Police Department in January of 2015. Officer Post is an asset to the Vienna Police Department because of her positive attitude, upbeat disposition and dedication to the mission. Although Officer Post is a relatively new officer, she serves the department as a Breath Alcohol Technician, Peer Support Specialist and Bike Team Member. Officer Post is always willing to go the extra mile to serve the community. To that end, Officer Post was recently awarded the 2016 Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) award for being one of the officers leading the Vienna Police Department on drunk driving arrests. Officer Post’s extraordinary efforts against drunk drivers make The Town of Vienna roads safer for everyone.
