Prince George’s County Police officers hit the streets every day to serve the community and each month the department honors examples of this hard work. We’d like to introduce you to the Officers of the Month for September.
District I Police Officer of the Month
Police Officer Yordy Diaz
On September 22, 2012, Police Officer Diaz’s actions led to the arrest of three armed robbery suspects. Police Officer Diaz responded to Ager Road and Tuckerman Street for a citizen armed robbery. Two suspects had entered the victim’s moving vehicle as she was slowing down, while a third suspect waited in another vehicle. As one suspect went through the victim’s purse and stole her cash and other property, another suspect held a gun to the victim’s head and threatened her life. The suspects then fled in a Toyota Corolla. While Police Officer Diaz interviewed the victim and broadcast a lookout, the suspects returned to the area. Police Officer Diaz immediately chased the suspects and arrested them.
