The Awards Committee has selected Officer Scott McCabe as The Officer of the Month for March 2017. On February 27, 2017 during roll call you were made aware of an attempted armed robbery involving a firearm. You were also given a description of a suspect and the vehicle that was used. While you were patrolling your sector you noticed a vehicle matching the description communicated to you at roll call earlier that day. The vehicle sped off as you approached it, you were able to coordinate with other units and after a brief pursuit, which turned into a foot pursuit in which the suspect broke into a residence in an attempt to escape, you and other Officers apprehended him. The vehicle was reported stolen from Lowell MA.The post arrest interview of the suspect resulted in the identification of another suspect and charges relative to a conspiracy to defraud an insurance company. Auto theft and insurance fraud is currently a focus of effort from The Lawrence Police Department. Officer McCabe, your observations and attention to detail that day resulted in the apprehension of an individual whom clearly represented an immediate danger to the citizens of Lawrence.
