Attention to detail gains two officers Police Chief Coins

Sgt. Javier Matiz, Sgt. David Galbraith receive Police Chief Coins from CPD Chief Al Ansley

Valentine’s Day brought special appreciation for two CPD sergeants. Sgt. Javier Matiz and Sgt. David Galbraith received their exemplary service coins from Clarksville Police Chief Al Ansley based on their performance in apprehension of armed robbery suspects where one of the victims had been pistol whipped.

On January 30, 2013, there was an armed robbery in District 3 in which one of the subjects pistol whipped the victim. After the robbery, the victim was able to call 911 and a description of the suspects was eventually released. Sgt. Matiz remembered observing a couple who met the description on Riverside Drive earlier that evening. This information, coupled with a cab dropping the suspects off at the Greyhound Bus station, led Sergeants Matiz and Galbraith to Kelly’s Big Burger in search of the suspects.

Once at Kelly’s Big Burger, Sergeant Matiz identified the suspects and a subsequent struggle took place, between suspect, Willie Hardy Jr, and Sergeants Matiz and Galbraith outside of the restaurant. During the struggle a loaded 9mm handgun fell from Mr. Hardy’s waistband unbeknownst to Sergeants Matiz and Galbraith. During the struggle Officer Volkman arrived on scene and was able to locate and secure the handgun that fell from Mr. Hardy’s waistband. She subsequently took suspect  Danielle Vineyard into custody while the struggle between Mr. Hardy and Sergeants Matiz and Galbraith continued.

CPD Badge ShieldSergeant Matiz, Sergeant Galbraith, and Officer Volkman’s action coupled with their attention to detail led to the apprehension of two violent offenders, recovered property that was taken during a robbery, and recovered a loaded handgun that was used during the robbery.

In presenting the officers with the coins, Chief Ansley noted “Their actions bring credit upon themselves, District 2, and the Clarksville Police Department.”
