Although there were no crimes in Oregon Hill on today’s Richmond Police report, there was recognition and congratulations for Officer Jonathon Nathanson, who has done a lot of work in the Fourth Precinct and Oregon Hill in particular.
Kudos to Officer Jonathan Nathanson who was named Fourth Precinct’s Officer of the Month for May! Officer Nathanson is still racking up the arrests – 42 for the month–and taking the calls – responding to 48! He’s also initiated more than 70 encounters just from his own observation while patrolling his assigned area. Officer Nathanson also seized two firearms and illegal narcotics last month; wrote 55 incident-based reports, conducted 16 field interviews and did more than 60 hours of bike patrol!
He was also selected to conduct DUI selective enforcement, resulting in numerous DUI arrests. Somehow, he still manages to find time to mentor a recruit from the 107th class and work with the Homeless Outreach Program with the Daily Planet and Richmond Behavioral Health Authority. Officer Nathanson is an all-around great officer and that’s why he’s been a frequent flier for Fourth Precinct’s Officer of the Month honors. Congratulations!
