LPD K-9 officer Windsor selected officer of the year

Laurel police Chief Tyrone Stewart (right in photo) presented the 2017 Officer of the Year award to officer John Windsor on Tuesday. Windsor is a 22-year veteran of law enforcement, having spent the last seven years with LPD. Officer Windsor has also served with the Forrest County and Jones County sheriff’s departments. Officer Windsor and his K-9 partner Johnny serve on patrol with LPD. The award was voted on by Windsor’s peers in the department. “The Laurel Police Department thanks the businesses and individuals who stepped up and sponsored this award,” Capt. Tommy Cox wrote in a news release. The 2018 Officer of the Year award will be presented in the spring, Cox said, because of a delay in presenting the 2017 award.
