Ocala Police Department was named the 2010 recipient of the Rocky Pomerance Excellence in Policing Award
Chief Samuel Williams and Lieutenant Cory Taylor travel to Orlando to receive prestigious Rocky Pomerance Excellence in Policing Award.
On Tuesday, June 28, 2011, at the Florida Police Chiefs Association’s annual summer conference, held at the luxurious Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida, the Ocala Police Department was named the 2010 recipient of the Rocky Pomerance Excellence in Policing Award for its Drug Market Intervention Initiative program.

This award recognizes excellence and innovation in policing and was established in honor of Chief Rocky Pomerance, who has been recognized as exemplifying the image of an innovative and visionary leader who furthered the mission of the Florida Police Chiefs Association and the law enforcement profession within Florida. A practitioner and visionary, Chief Rocky Pomerance, served as the Chief of Police in Miami Beach, Florida, from early 1950s through 1977 and served as the President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police from October 1973 through October 1974.

The FPCA Rocky Pomerance Awards Committee, made up of chief executives of Florida law enforcement agencies, praised our DMI program for its achievements in the following areas:

 Continual improvement of services to the community.
 Strengthening of police relations and promotion of community participation.
 Effective use of resources in addressing a significant community concern.
 Enhancement of communication within and cooperation among law enforcement agencies, and/or other service providers.
 Development of creative and innovative approaches that raise the quality and effectiveness of law enforcement.
 Successful strategies for enhancing quality of life within the community by implementing initiatives to increase citizen safety and security.

In addition to a plaque presented to Chief Samuel Williams at the FPCA Installation & Awards Banquet, that will be proudly displayed at the Department, the Ocala Police Department’s DMI program will be featured, in an article, in the first Florida Police Chief Magazine published following the conference so that other agencies can learn and benefit from our successes through an exchange of ideas and solutions to problems.
