UPD Award: Officer Grant Richardson

Nov 28, 2014 07:53AM ● By City of Taylorsville

 While conducting pro-active patrol in the area of 4200 South Redwood Road in the early hours of August 17th, 2014, Officer Richardson observed a motor home parked behind adjacent businesses.  


Concerned what the occupants of the motor home were doing at this hour and location, Officer Richardson made contact.

 Incident to contact, Officer Richardson questioned and later arrested a wanted felon, who had significant criminal history.  In addition to the arrest, Officer Richardson seized narcotics, drug paraphernalia and a weapon.

Through Officer Richardson’s pro-active and diligent efforts, a more significant crime to one of our residents very well may have been averted.

Officer Richardson is to be commended for his work ethic and resolve.
