The Bethel Police Department is both excited and proud to present our 2019 Officer of the Year, Detective Jonathan “Chuck” McClintock!
Detective McClintock was hired in 2015, and spent the majority of his patrol days on the evening shift. In 2018, when the position of Youth Officer became available, Detective McClintock was quick to express his interest. Detective McClintock has long been recognized as a hard-working, talented, and compassionate member of the Bethel Police Department, and as a result, was granted an opportunity to learn more about the position on a rotational assignment. Based on his ability, efforts, dedication, and enthusiasm, Detective McClintock was officially assigned to the Detective Bureau in 2019 as the Youth Officer.
Since his assignment, Detective McClintock has served as one of Bethel Police Department’s Evidence Room managers and he has been forensically trained in both Encase (digital investigations) and Finding Words (juvenile interviews). Detective McClintock's work continues to benefit the community at large, with his efforts having resulted in numerous warrants and arrests of offenders related to investigations that involve serious crimes against children.
As our Youth Officer, Detective McClintock oversees all sexual assaults and juvenile related cases; participates in and conducts school and community events; and acts as the liaison between Bethel Police Department and numerous other agencies.
Investigations aside, Detective McClintock is known for his personal pride in the Bethel Police Department which quickly became evident through various independent projects. Detective McClintock never hesitates to volunteer, and he can always be relied upon to exceed expectations.
We are so fortunate to have you Detective McClintock!
