Edgewater Police Department’s Corporal Mike Nesbitt recently left the city for a police officer position with Red Rocks Community College Police Department, according to Chief Mackey.
“Mike served our community for the past five plus years in exemplary fashion with a passion for community policing activities, animal issues, neighborhood traffic enforcement, over 200 DUI arrests and a multitude of commendations,” said Mackey.
Nesbitt sustained serious respiratory injuries last summer when his pursuit of a DUI suspect resulted in a fight in which he was assaulted.
“Mike’s injuries involved cardiac arrest and he was initially on life support for several days and miraculously was able to recover and return to work with the Edgewater Police Department on September 11, 2017,” said Mackey.
“The Edgewater Police Family has been honored to have served alongside Corporal Mike Nesbitt for the past five years in service to our Edgewater Community, we salute your professionalism and dedication to duty and wish you, your wife Cortni and girls Kennedy and Grayson all the best!”
