Community Assault Prevention Services (CAPS) would like to announce the recipient of its annual "Officer of the Year" Award. The 2017 Officer of the Year honor goes to Patrolman David P. Ward of the Oak Hill Police Department.

CAPS is a Victims Service organization that is non-profit and funded by the Ohio Attorney General's Crime Victim Service grant (VOCA/SVAA) and the Office of Criminal Justice.

Locally, they are funded by General Mills, marriage license funds, and the Jackson County United Fund. Services provided by CAPS include assisting victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault with protection orders, an emergency shelter, and court accompaniment.

Working with various victims all over the county, CAPS provides victims with surveys to receive feedback not only on their program but also in regards to which law enforcement officer is most helpful. The CAPS staff goes through the surveys and the officer mentioned the most receives the Officer of the Year award.

Ward was given this year's award. He is the 14th recipient of the award as it has been given since 2003. Normally noted for his work with K9 Officer Dago, Ward is being recognized for his outstanding service to victims of crime. CAPS would like to congratulate Patrolman Ward and thank him and all local law enforcement for the outstanding service to the victims in Jackson County.
