TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

On April 15, 2017, Officer Shawn Patze received the 2017 Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer Commendation Medal and Certificate of Commendation Award from the Sons of the American Revolution, Tucson Chapter. 

The ceremony was held at the Arizona Inn in Tucson. Officer Patze was recognized along with nine other law enforcement officers from Southern Arizona representing Municipal, County, State, and Federal agencies.

Officer Patze was selected for this award because of his superior performance in handling a multi-year narcotics and organized crime investigation while assigned to the DEA as a Task Force Officer. Officer Patze’s investigation resulted in the identification and arrest of dozens of suspects for felony charges. 

The investigation also resulted in the seizure of several hundred pounds of illegal narcotics and hundreds of thousands of dollars of illegal drug revenue from criminal enterprises. This same investigation also resulted in Officer Patze receiving the Sahuarita Police Department Chief’s Citation in January of 2017.
