December 20, 2006 - Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and Police Chief Sterling Owen named Donna Patty and Jonne Crick the Civilian Employees of the Month for September. Ms. Patty has been with the department since December 1990 while Ms. Crick has been with KPD since September 1997.

Chief Owen said Ms. Crick and Ms. Patty are responsible for submitting Knoxville Police Department crime information to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) on a monthly basis. More than 2,000 reports are generated every month. Ms. Patty and Ms. Crick review every report and complete report supplements for reports that are not completed correctly.
Nearly two years ago, the decision was made to find ways to reduce the number of Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System (TIBRS) errors reported to the TBI each month.

Mayor Haslam, honorees, Chief OwenChief Owen said, "Donna and Jonne created several different strategies to improve the reporting process. They conducted training for officers, sent feedback to supervisors, submitted ideas for newsletter articles, and helped create a pre-check program for reports. Due to their hard work, Jonne and Donna were awarded the Outstanding Performance Award by the TBI. This award represents a less than 0.5% error rate for all the data submitted during the last year."
Mayor Haslam said, "This achievement represents an outstanding performance on the part of Donna and Jonne. We commend them for a job well done."

Ms. Crick and Ms. Patty will receive a signed certificate from the Mayor and Chief along with a free dinner from Ruby Tuesday Restaurant.
