Officer of the Year Ara Baronian, center, with daughters, was honored with an official proclamation by City Council at its Jan. 22 meeting.

Baronian was joined by his family, including wife Edie, far right.

A four-year Milton policeman and father of two, Baronian was chosen because of his work in raising more than $24,000 for the purchase of K-9 officer Kyro, plus his expansion of the Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) classes, Milton Police and Citizens Together (MPACT) neighborhood watch program and Citizens Police Academy (CPA).

Last year alone Baronian hosted 24 students in the 10-week academy, added six neighborhoods to MPACT, a 21 percent increase in participation, and taught more than 100 women and girls in six RAD classes.
