Metro Court’s Protection Unit Named APD’s Team of the Month for August


Metro Court’s Protection Unit was named APD’s Team of the Month at a ceremony on August 9th, where the officers were recognized for the high volume of calls they respond to and the professional service they provide to the court and the citizens who frequent it.  

The Metro Court Protection Unit is comprised of seven officers who are responsible for the security and safety of Metro Court and the Pretrial Services Building down the street.  On a daily basis, the officers monitor approximately 2,500-5,500 people in and out of the facility. They respond to disturbances within the courtrooms, to warrants and to remand orders.  In March of 2018, the Unit responded to 894 calls for service and 32 duress calls and also made 138 misdemeanor arrests and 35 felony arrests.

In his letter of recognition to the Team, Police Chief Micheal Geier said, “Through observing the Protection Unit’s contacts in-person as well as through random video reviews, they treat every citizen with respect and exemplify the department’s core values.  There is a plethora of knowledge and experience between all seven officers in the Metro Protection Unit, and they work well as a team to accomplish the goal of community policing.”
