As Compatriot Walker read the nominiations, Chapter President Bill Price presented the awards to two very deserving recipients.

MPO Joseph Millirons brings an infectious enthusiasm for police work while he coaches and mentors fellow squad members. He is constantly seeking innovative ways to combat crime along with ways to motivate his fellow officers.

MPO Millirons has served at the Mason District Station as a patrol officer and a detective. He has worked on every patrol squad and shift at the station, and has been assigned to the bike team and the criminal investigations section’s selective enforcement unit. During his 28 year tenure, MPO Millirons has trained over 20 police recruits and is constantly suggesting training opportunities for his squad to participate in. Most recently, he was one of the founders of the Mason Inspection Unit. This new unit ensures retail establishments are in compliance with relevant law, licensing and local ordinances and requires close coordination with the Office of Code Compliance, Alcoholic Beverage Control and the Fire Marshal’s Office.

MPO Joseph Millirons is presented with the SAR Law Enforcement Commendation Medal for his superior job knowledge, devotion to duty and dedication to those he serves.

 

 

Medal Recipient

Sergeant Mark P. Dale

 

Sergeant Mark Dale has served as a patrol officer, bike team member, a member of the Street Crimes Unit, a supplemental firearms training instructor, a canine officer and was one of the first dog handlers to be incorporated with the tactical team on a callout basis. Few officers voluntarily leave specialty positions prior to promotion. However, when Mark Dale became eligible for promotion to Sergeant, he decided to return to patrol duties to better prepare himself for his role as a patrol supervisor.

Of particular note, Sergeant Dale undertook the establishment of the “officer involved shooting group” within the department’s Peer Support Section. This group responds to every departmental shooting and all members, including Sergeant Dale, have themselves been involved in a shooting. Thus they are able to directly relate to the involved officer in those critical first hours. Sergeant Dale is recognized within the region for his work in this field and has lectured at the FBI Academy on police involved shootings.

In addition to his official duties, Sergeant Dale is active with the Police Unity Tour, which is intertwined with the Concerns of Police Survivors, all to help bring awareness to the families of fallen officers.

Sergeant Mark Dale is presented with the SAR Law Enforcement Commendation Medal for his outstanding commitment of service to Fairfax County.
