The Officer of the Year Ceremony was held at The Clubs of Prestonwood on June 16, 2021. Recipient Senior Corporal Steven Castillo, #5733, along with several other recognized officers, were honored by the Dallas Community Police Awards Committee (DCPAC) for their dedication and commitment to the citizens of Dallas and the Dallas Police Department.
Senior Corporal Castillo works within the Jubillee Park area and helps coordinate the flow of information between citizens, neighborhood groups, businesses, social service agencies, and other city departments. He has responded to over 900 citizen complaints, which could have potentially developed into 911 calls, and implemented the O.M. Roberts Traffic Safety Zone program to ensure children get to and from school safely. Castillo has given his time and donations to assist young boys of Jubilee Park to participate in Cub Scout Pack 9007. His service contributed to increasing the scout’s self-esteem, leadership skills, and yet simultaneously developed qualities that aligned with the vision of the Boy Scouts of America.
He is a true professional and credit to the Dallas Police Department. Congratulations to Senior Corporal Castillo.
