Our First Responder of the Day comes from Alameda County! His name is Deputy Sheriff Terrance Montigue. He has been on the force for 14 years. For the last 3 years he has been an Alameda County Robbery Investigator. They've been working REALLY hard to get the number of robberies down in the county, and guess what?! Robberies in surrounding agencies have actually INCREASED, while robberies in Alameda County have dropped 11 %! On top of that, the robbery section of the department has solved more than 40% of the robbery cases they face!
Now, I have DIRECT instruction to mention this: Deputy Sheriff Montigue is from Newark, New Jersey... and his colleagues don't let him forget it. The phrase he hears frequently is, “...not bad for a guy from New Jersey.” … This might be because he is an avid Yankees and Jets fan. But thats ok, because in the land of the GIANTS he is a hero. And for that, we thank you.
