SUISUN CITY - The best of Suisun City's law enforcement will be honored Tuesday when the city council recognizes Officer Andrew White and Reserve Officer Michael Urlaub.

Earlier this year, Police Chief Ron Forsythe announced White as the 2005 Officer of the Year and Urlaub as Reserve Officer of the Year. Communications Technician Amber Kent was named 2005 Dispatcher of the Year.

White was described as "a prime example of the enthusiasm and capabilities of our young police officers," by Forsythe, who said White was one of the department's top patrol officers.

White is also heavily involved with the department's community-oriented policing project, where he has organized meetings with residents in the Cedar Glen area.

Forsythe lauded Urlaub as "one of only two reserves in the department's history to be released for solo patrol work in the community."

Urlaub has also aggressively sought out and paid for an impressive range of training that ranged from traffic collision investigation to digital crimes investigation.

He is also a member of the countywide Driving Under the Influence enforcement team, assists the department's major crimes unit and works with the boat unit.

The two men will be honored at 7 p.m. Tuesday when the city council meets in the city council chamber at 701 Civic Center Blvd.
