Sr. Officer Mike Wilson
The 2013 Officer of the Year is an officer who, every year, demonstrates the true meaning of teamwork and dedication.
Sr. Officer Mike Wilson has put in many years with the Pflugerville Police Department. His dedication and commitment to the City is as vibrant today as it was when he first started. Although he works in a division that is very demanding of his time and resources, he is quick to help any officer and any division as needed. He has an uncanny ability to sense when help is needed and appears at times of need.
His current job assignment is one that historically generates a fair amount of complaints; however, this officer very rarely receives any negative feedback. In fact, he receives many accolades from City Hall, City Council and the citizens of Pflugerville.
In addition to helping patrol as needed, he has also assisted in Records when the need arises. He does all this with a smile on his face because he truly enjoys helping others.
Sgt. Mike Silva does an excellent job leading his shift and developing each officer. He spends his time with each officer individually to discuss professional growth and achievable goals. He has earned the respect of his fellow officers by leading by example. Day-in and day-out he is on the streets with his shift working hard. It speaks volumes about a supervisor who is willing to do the same work that he expects out of his troops.
