Employee of the Quarter

Detective Timothy Burt

This past quarter, Detective Timothy Burt was assigned to investigate a hit and run crash involving a pedestrian.  This incident occurred in the heart of downtown Dover, leaving the pedestrian seriously injured and the community distressed.  The only lead to identify the suspect was that the involved vehicle was a black sedan.  In an attempt to solve this crime, Detective Burt obtained video footage from numerous businesses, contacted local repair shops, and followed up on multiple tips from the public.  He pieced together the video footage from several angles to better identify the car, and a lead from a glass repair shop allowed him to identify the involved vehicle and ultimately the driver.  Detective Burt’s police experience and determination was obvious, and it was “old-fashioned detective work” that led to this felony arrest bringing relief to the victim and the community. – Sgt.
