The Berlin Police Department announced that Officer Dave Rohon was selected Employee of the Quarter as part of the department’s recently-launched BEST program.
In a Facebook post announcing the Employee of the Quarter, the department states: “This new program was designed to increase the amount of recognition our employees receive for outstanding work and performance, to reward employees who demonstrate leadership, and to highlight the ‘BEST’ our department has to offer.”
Rohon has been with the Berlin Police Department for almost seven years. Previously, he served 21 years with the New Britain Police Department and retired holding the rank of sergeant.
The Berlin PD stated, “Officer Rohon has extensive experience as an investigator. During his career with New Britain he worked as detective and later supervised their Detective Bureau. Officer Rohon recently completed a four-year assignment as an acting detective in Berlin and is currently assigned to our Operations Division.”
The statement went on to outline some of the notable work Rohon was involved with during the first quarter of 2021, including his investigation of a call involving a victim who had a knife held to their neck by a masked offender. Rohon’s work on the case led to the arrest of the offender for charges that included reckless endangerment and possession of a dangerous weapon.
In another instance, Rohon was assigned to investigate a loud noise complaint having to do with a group of youngsters outside on a cul de sac. “Officer Rohon turned the encounter into a positive one, tossing around the football and letting them take some pictures near his police cruiser,” the department shared.
