Nate Maimone Selected as OPD’s Officer of the Year

FINAL Nate 2016 Officer of Year

Officer Nate Maimone

Each January members of the police department vote to select the department’s Officer of the Year which is sponsored by the Orrville Exchange Club. In four of the past five years officer Nate Maimone has been named OPD’s top cop.

One of the reasons Orrville has enjoyed historically low crime levels over the past several years is the ability to solve crimes. Officer Maimone is one of the very best investigators in the area, which is a direct reflection on Orrville being considered one of the safest communities in Ohio, which saw us reach #27 in 2017.

Officer Maimone is relentless in his efforts at solving crimes. His attention to detail and tremendous work ethic has garnered him the respect of his peers year after year.

In addition to being one of the department’s primary criminal investigators, Maimone is also a Field Training Officer, which means when a new officer is hired, Maimone has the added responsibility of providing on the job training for the officer. He also serves as the Senior Operator and Safety Officer for the department’s Special Response Team.

Maimone was hired at Orrville in 2008. Prior to being hired by OPD, he was an officer at Dalton PD and West Salem PD. He was also a dispatcher for Medina police department.

As Maimone approaches his 10 year anniversary at OPD, he has already garnered numerous awards for his stellar service to the community. There is little doubt that he will continue to add to his already impressive resume and our community will continue to benefit from his outstanding efforts.
