Deputy John Haro was named Officer of the Year Wednesday at the Porterville Exchange Club’s Public Safety Recognition dinner at the Porterville Veterans Memorial Building.
“I’m very thankful for being nominated, for being given this award,” Deputy Haro said. “To me, it’s a great compliment to the work that I’m doing here and that I get to experience with my peers.”
Deputy Haro said he became a deputy because he likes helping people.
“I just like helping people in the community,” he said. “It sounds a little cliché but that really is what I feel is why people get into law enforcement, for public service.”
He is assigned to the Porterville Substation and his beat covers Tonyville, Strathmore and the unincorporated areas of Lindsay.
Lieutenant Bobby Rader said Deputy Haro is intimately familiar with his beat area, the citizens who live there and the criminal activity that occurs there.
“Deputy Haro’s actions exemplified our department motto of ‘We Will Be the Difference’. Deputy Haro was the difference.”
