Cary Chapter to Sponsor Officer of the Year Award In Honor of Retired Detective George Almond

The Cary Chapter board recently voted to sponsor an Officer of the Year Award in honor of retired Detective George Almond. Almond, a PBA member, was shot in the line of duty in October of 2001. Almond survived the shooting and returned to duty as a Detective in juvenile investigations before retiring in August of 2004. George was born in Salisbury and attended East Rowan High School. He later attended Appalachian State University majoring in Criminal Justice. There he met his wife Pam. They have two children named Kaley and Emily. George, who worked for the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the Cary Police Department for eleven years, keeps busy by speaking to church, school, and civic groups about his experience. He is also involved with volunteer work at his daughter's school. George will be part of the committee that will set up the criteria and nominating process for the award. George will also be the presenter of the annual award. The committee is chaired by Randall Rhyne. Shawna Geyer is also on the committee. In the coming weeks they will be announcing the process for selection for this important award for the Chapter.
