Officer Wilson Receives Award for Community Service

Each year the Beaverton Police Department recognizes one officer for their outstanding service to the community and to the department. The Officer of the Year award is given to the officer who best exemplifies the Beaverton Police Departments core tenets: Courage, Compassion, and Integrity.
Officer Michel Wilson is the Beaverton Police Department’s Officer of the Year for 2021. In addition to her role as a patrol officer working the evening shift, Officer Wilson has been the department’s liaison for the Beaverton Sobriety Opportunity for Beginning Recovery (B-SOBR) program for the past seven years. Her dedication to this program can be seen in the number of hours she puts into the program, from home visits to attending multidisciplinary staffing meetings and court proceedings. Officer Wilson is instrumental in helping the B-SOBR participants gain the tools and skills to be successful in the program and in life. She also takes the time to educate her peers and supervisors about the B-SOBR program with briefing trainings and acting as a mentor for officers when they join the B-SOBR Home Visit team.
Off duty, Officer Wilson dedicates her time to the Ladies in Blue Clothing Closet, which she founded in 2015. From planning and recruiting volunteers, to driving around the entire metro area picking up clothing donations, Officer Wilson really has embraced the concept of “Empowering women through Fashion and Friendship.” Because of Officer Wilson’s efforts, the 2021 Ladies in Blue Clothing Closet event was the most successful to date with 250 shoppers from our community.
Thank you, Officer Wilson, for your service to the Beaverton Police Department and our community.
