LtoR: Major Anthony Allen, DO Ashley Nolan
and Captain Keith Gaston
Duty Officer Ashley Nolan assumed her console Aug. 14 from the previous shift as a high-speed pursuit ensued. Nolan had arrived early, which is her routine, to become familiar with any current open incidents in her area of concern. The pursuit and subsequent area search that involved several state and local law enforcement agencies lasted a total of 5.5 hours, during which she remained at her console without a break. Nolan relayed information to all involved units, coordinated with other law enforcement agencies and kept all supervisors informed of all pertinent information. Her attention to detail and patience while dealing with constant radio traffic and telephone calls was impressive. Nolan remained calm under trying circumstances and maintained a professional demeanor throughout the pursuit.
Her work ethic, professional knowledge, patience and common sense make Nolan a true asset to her section and to the Jacksonville Regional Communications Center. The Department congratulates her for earning the honor of Florida Highway Patrol Duty Officer of the Quarter for July through September 2011.
