EPD commends officer

EUREKA - Eureka Police commend one of their own for a job well done.

Officer Tim Cooper has been with the department for four and a half years. He’s been an active Field Training Officer and Watch Commander and he has been recognized nationally for the largest seizure of explosive materials on a proactive enforcement basis.

On his own, he’s lobbied to get Humboldt County designated as a "high intensity drug trafficking area" which has brought in money and resources to the region. His reputation as a man of integrity, treating all with respect, dignity and fairness has not compromised his arrest record. Large amounts of drugs and guns have been taken off the street due to his actions. The EPD celebrates this outstanding officer.
