Chad, like many First Responders, goes above and beyond. It seemingly is a trait many in that line of work have. When it comes to helping people, Chad does it both on and off the clock. For him, it is all about helping people.

He isn't just a Police Officer for one municipality, but in fact, he does it for two. Chad is a full-time officer for the Town of Camden while also doing part-time work for the City of Sherrill. His nominator says he is an amazing help to new officers, offering time for advice and answering questions many times while off duty.

His nominator had these kind words to say about Chad.

Chad is the most personable and committed police officer anyone could meet. He treats everyone with respect.

Do you know a first responder that deserves to be recognized? Tell us about someone who should be honored in Central New York - a firefighter, police officer, EMT, forest ranger, paramedic, DEC officers, military, rescuers, front line workers, or any other person first on the scene.

Include their name, a picture, and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday." We'll honor one first responder every Friday and as a way to say thank you, we'll give them an oil change from Jiffy Lube on Commercial Drive in New Hartford and a Bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
