Officer of the Month: April 2017

On April 6, 2017, Police Officer Zoltan Laky, a 26 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department was awarded Officer of the Month by the Dallas Police Awards Committee. 

Officer Laky is currently assigned to the Northwest Patrol Division.  His everyday positive attitude towards law enforcement, supervisors, and fellow officers were key components in him receiving the award.  Laky is a self initiated officer who intentionally seeks out activity within the patrol and investigative spectrum of this career. Officer Laky’s area of expertise is in removing dangerous criminals from the general public.

In December 2015, he was tasked with focused patrols to stem the tide of habitation burglaries that plagued the Northwest area; he was to search for both active burglars and execute warrants on burglary suspects. From this task, he answered numerous calls for service and made 89 arrests, including capturing 9 felony in the acts.

Officer Laky has also assisted the Crimes Against Persons Division in locating sexual assault suspects and has never shied away from facing dangerous situations. Officer Laky’s observation skills and attention to detail have always assisted him locating a high end at large suspect. 

The Dallas Police Department would like to thank Officer Laky for all his hard work and dedication during his 26 years of service. Thank you and congratulations on achieving the Officer of the Month Award for April 2017.
