|Personnel Employee Honored For Outstanding Job Performance
September 26, 2006 - Knoxville Mayor Bill
Haslam and Police Chief Sterling Owen named Patricia Nicley the Civilian
Employee of the Month for July. Ms. Nicley has been with the department
since September 1989.
Nicley started her career with the Knoxville Police Department assigned
to the Records Unit. In December 1991, she transferred to the Personnel
Section. Ms. Nicley is a consistently dedicated and professional employee
of the department. Due to recent staffing level reductions in the
Personnel Office, she has recently taken on additional duties without
complaint or compensation.
Chief Owen said, "Ms. Nicley is polite, respectful, and always
has a smile for anyone who crosses her doorway. You can always count
on her for a quick pick-me-up either in the form of a smile or a generous
helping of chocolate from her never empty candy basket."
"Ms. Nicley is the definition of a professional and dedicated
employee," said Chief Owen.
Mayor Haslam said, "Ms. Nicley is an exemplary employee who truly
represents the Knoxville Police Department's Operational Philosophy
of doing the right thing, treating others as you wish to be treated,
and doing your best everyday. We think her for her dedication to the
city and to the citizens we serve."
Ms. Nicley will receive a signed certificate from the Mayor and Chief
along with a free dinner from Bayou Bay Seafood House.
