Mayo Credle Honored for 25 Years of Service to Police Reserves
The mayor and council presented a certificate of appreciation to Mayo Credle during the Oct. 19 council meeting, recognizing him for his 25 years of service to the Westwood auxiliary police, commonly called the police reserves.
Credle was first appointed a member of the auxiliary police June 19, 1985. In January 1999, he was promoted to the rank of auxiliary sergeant, placed in charge of two squads. In May 2000, he was promoted to auxiliary captain leading the police reserves, the position he still holds today.
The resolution the council approved praised Credle for his reliability for being out at scheduled events and emergency calls and for helping run the auxiliary police which continuously provides 2,000 hours of service annually.
Credle thanked the council for the recognition and said it's been "wonderful working for this town." He said the volunteer group is growing and he wants to keep it that way.
