Highway Patrolman Curtis Plumb has been selected as the District Three Officer of the Year for 2013, according to Arizona Dept. of Public Safety District Commander Larry Parks.
Captain Parks selected Plumb from the district’s staff that consists of seven separate areas comprising over 1,400 miles of state highway in northeastern Arizona. Plumb made 1,024 violators stops, issued 283 hazardous citations, 133 non-hazardous citations, 14 restraint violations, and 817 warning and repair orders. In addition, he had four aggravated DUI arrests, plus 16 misdemeanor DUI arrests, 53 felony arrests and 32 other misdemeanor arrests. He also investigated 22 collisions, had 28 thirty-day impound vehicles, 32 commercial vehicle inspections and 41 motorist assists.
The patrolman received several complimentary letters regarding his aid and assistance from motorists who found themselves stranded on Interstate 40. Furthermore, Plumb was the 2013 DUI Officer of the Year for District Three and was awarded a new Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) utility patrol vehicle. He recently tested for the DPS Canine program and was selected as the number one candidate on their promotion list. He has field trained two new officers for DPS and one deputy for the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office.
Plumb is very involved in his community; he assisted with coaching Holbrook Junior High School softball and volleyball, as well as Holbrook High School wrestling. He has assisted with the instruction of an NRA hunter safety course in Joseph City, and donated his time to the HJHS Gifted Club. He was also a volunteer rodeo judge at the Navajo County Fair last fall.
