Texarkana, Ark., Police Department Sgt. Devin Warner received the Criminal Investigation Division Bulldog of the Year Award.

Warner was selected after being nominated by peers, subordinates and supervisors for the leadership role he has taken in the Criminal Investigation Division in 2010.

During his tenure, Warner has worked on myriad cases, from the simplest misdemeanor theft to the most severe felony offenses, according to a press release from TAPD spokeswoman Kristi Bennett.

In each instance, Warner gave each investigation his greatest effort, not knowing how to give any less.

He is adept in every aspect of CID and is willing to work in every capacity, from the most menial assignment to the most exciting,. Bennett wrote.

Warner is also the "go-to guy" whenever there is a need for extensive research into a suspect's past, including family, associations, workplaces and past interactions with law enforcement.

He has a knack for remembering people and events beyond that of anyone else in CID, according to Bennett.

During investigations, he often draws upon this wealth of knowledge to develop viable leads and suspects.

Warner is loyal to those he works with and makes extra efforts to remember their special occasions, like their birthday, often using his own money to purchase birthday cakes or other gifts, Bennett wrote.

Warner is a valuable asset to the Criminal Investigation Division, the Texarkana police and the community our agency serves.

Based on Warner's leadership, dedication, knowledge and uncanny ability to remember details about everyone, he has been selected by the Criminal Investigation Division as the 2018 Criminal Investigator of the Year.
