Janice Kolhof

Janice Kohlof is 10 year veteran of the Escondido Police Department.  Janice has spent most of her career training new police officers.  Janice’s training ability is viewed in such high regard that she is often asked to take trainees who are struggling to make it.  If the Department wants to know to the most certainty if the trainee has the ability to become a safe and successful police officer, Janice is the one they look to.  More often than not, she is able save them.  Janice is well respected by her peers and supervisors for two major reasons, her work ethic and commitment to physical fitness.  Janice never stops working hard and is always willing to help others.  Janice is always among the shift leaders in enforcement activity.  Janice’s level of fitness is easily described as elite.  In a recent cross fit competition, Janice outperformed police officers and fire fighters more than twice her size.  More importantly, Janice was able to use her fitness and training level to successfully fight off a mentally ill suspect who was twice her size and tried to take her gun.  It is for all these reasons and more than Janice is being recognized with this award.

K9 Officer Jessica Severance was hired on 4/20/07 and is currently assigned to patrol as a K9 officer working graveyards.On 02-15-14, at 1244 hours, K9 Officer Jessica Severance was dispatched to 42 Sierra Way regarding a male who was not breathing.  Upon her arrival, she located the subject, who was a mentally disabled person and is a patient at the board and care facility operated at this location. Officer Severance performed CPR and First Aid until paramedics arrived on scene. Without the life saving measures undertaken by Officer Severance, Barber would have likely lost his life.
