TUSTIN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
OFFICERS OF THE MONTH
November 2014
Officer Carter

On December 27, 2014, Officer Carter was working uniformed patrol when he noticed five subjects loitering and drinking alcoholic beverages on the sidewalk in front of 1882 Mitchell Avenue. Officer Carter recognized one of the subjects from prior contacts to be on formal probation with a condition of search and seizure. To gain a tactical advantage, Officer Carter circled around the block onto a side street, and parked his patrol vehicle. He then approached the group on foot.

Officer Carter engaged the group in conversation; he identified several of them to be associated with a local Tustin criminal street gang. Officer Carter obtained consent to search the five subjects. He skillfully searched the first four subjects, but did not locate any illegal items or contraband. Officer Carter began to search the fifth subject who spontaneously stated he did not have a concealed weapon permit. Undeterred, Officer Carter continued the search, and located a loaded Springfield SD .45 caliber handgun in the suspect’s waistband. Officer Carter also located two concealed magazines loaded with hollow-point ammunition. The suspect was disarmed and arrested without incident.

Officer Carter maintained excellent poise throughout the situation, which resulted in a successful outcome. For his observation skills, decision-making skills, and tactics, Officer Michael Carter has been selected as the recipient of the Chamber of Commerce Officer of the Month Award for January 2015. Congratulations Officer Carter!
