Congratulations to Deputy Specialist Steve Squier, recipient of the 2021 Texas Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association (TCPAAA) Ray Ramon Award – Peace Officer of the Year. On July 31, 2021, the TCPAAA Convention awards dinner was held in Plano. The prestigious award is presented annually to a Citizen Police Academy (CPA) coordinator who is deemed to have contributed the most to the development of the CPA program during the year.
TCPAAA attendee Ronnie Rector said, "What makes this award even more special is this: Steve is the first recipient of the award coming from a county Sheriff's Office. All previous winners have been from municipal police departments from around the state."
MCCS Board of Directors Chairman Charles Costenbader added, “For those of us who serve on the Multi-County Crime Stoppers board with Steve, it comes as no surprise that he received the TCPAAA Ray Ramon Award - Peace Officer of the Year. Steve is the best Coordinator we could hope to have. I know I speak on behalf of all the MCCS members, saying we recognize and appreciate Steve's unwavering dedication and commitment. His vision as a leader reflects his deep-rooted sense of passion and purpose. Steve - Thank you for being you, and keep up the excellent work!”

COMMEND AN OFFICER
Have you experienced or witnessed law enforcement going above and
beyond their normal scope of duty?
Everyone likes a pat on the back when they do a good job, and law enforcement officers are no exception. If you receive service from law enforcement in the Texas multi-county areas of Montgomery, Liberty, and San Jacinto counties, or observe law enforcement actions in these geographies that you feel are worthy of a commendation, we would like to hear about it.
As part of Back the Blue, and in conjunction withKSTAR radio and Top Cop Shop, Multi-County Crimes Stoppers will select one officer from among the weekly submitted entries to receive a $50 gift certificate to theTop Cop Shop, where the chosen officer can purchase equipment to help them in the performance of their job. Half of the gift certificate ($25) is funded by MCCS, with matching funds ($25) from the Top Cop Shop. The award announcement will be made on KSTAR radio.
Visit the MCCS website and complete the form to submit your recommendation for a commendation. *Please Note: This form is intended to address commendations related to law enforcement ONLY. If you have a comment about something other than a police officer's conduct worth of recognition, please contact your local agency.
