On May 2, 2018, the Cochise County Sheriff's Department hosted a combined 'Law Enforcement Memorial Service' and 'Cochise County TOP COP Award' presentation, in which all agencies within Cochise County were invited to attend. The idea behind the 'TOP COP' award was to bring attention to individual officers from their respective agencies that were nominated as their department 'TOP COP'.
There were sixteen different agencies in attendance, each presenting a letter of nomination for their respective organization. All of the officers that were mentioned deserve recognition for their achievements throughout the year, however, I would like to especially recognize Deputy Marcus Gerow for all he has done for the Tombstone Marshal's Office since coming on board.
For many reasons, and too many to list here, I would like to congratulate Deputy Marcus Gerow for being Tombstone Marshal's Department's 'TOP COP' for 2018.
