Detective Brent Dawson Named Dixon Officer of the Year

The Dixon Police Department announced Detective Brent Dawson as the 2022 Officer of the Year. Det. Dawson joined the Dixon Police Department in 2020 with 18 years of law enforcement experience. His assignments include Field Training Officer, Rangemaster, Armorer, and Investigations.  

An example of his exemplary work was evidenced in January 2022, when Detective Dawson responded to an arson at a local business that caused significant damage. After hours of investigation, including reviewing surveillance footage and cross-referencing license plate reader data, Detective Dawson identified the suspect vehicle and the suspect. Within a week, Detective Dawson located the suspect and obtained a full confession, resulting in an arrest. For his exceptional performance of duty, he was awarded an Award of Excellence.  

Officer Dawson’s work ethic and work product are admirable. His substantial knowledge and experience benefit his peers and the entire department. He is committed to continuing his professional education and often suggests training or development to his co-workers. His peers seek his advice and guidance. With his help, junior officers are producing high-quality police reports and search warrants. Officer Dawson continues to be an asset to this department and was unanimously chosen by his supervisors as the 2022 Dixon Police Officer of the Year.  

Det. Dawson will be honored with all Solano County law enforcement agencies honorees at the 2022 Night of Honor, sponsored by the Rotary International, on October 21, 2022.
