Odessa Police Name "Officer of the Month" for November

Odessa Police Name "Officer of the Month" for November

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Every month, the Odessa Police Department highlights their outstanding officers by nominating them for "Officer of the Month."

November's well-deserved winner of Officer of the Month is Officer Francisco Robles. 

Officer Robles wrote 164 citations in the month of September alone, which led the entire department.

On top of those accomplishments, Robles' duty to protect and serve really shined when he helped get convicted murderer, Matthew Armendariz, off the streets in October during a traffic stop.

When asked about his honor as Officer of the Month, Robles was modest, saying he was just doing his job.

"I don't do it for myself," says Robles. "I do it for my team, my brothers, my sisters that work here with me. "I just do it for them. I'm not here to get recognized; I'm just going to keep working hard. That's what I was taught to do, and that's what I'm going to continue to do."

Officer Robles is honored to be November's Officer of the Month, and he says he will continue to protect and serve, not only for him, but for the people of Odessa.
