Lake Alfred - On Thursday, September 12, 2019, Police Chief Bodenheimer presented Officer Anthony Gettle with his 15 Years of Service recognition plaque. Officer Anthony Gettle began working for the Lake Alfred Police Department starting on Sept. 1st, 2004.

   While working for the police department, Officer Gettle also served his country in the United States Army Reserve and the Florida Army National Guard collectively from 1996 through his retirement in 2016.

   Officer Gettle has been a valuable member of the Lake Alfred Police Department and is currently assigned as a Police Officer II. He is also the agency's Intoxilizer Inspector and Breath Test Operator, as well as a seasoned Field Training Officer.

   Officer Gettle is a very personable Officer who has established a wide-ranging rapport within our residential and business community and has always made himself available to assist the staff with any assistance requested of him. He is currently our agency's most senior ranking officer in service.

   Officer Gettle has been recognized many times for his willingness to go above and beyond in helping citizens in distress whether it is a vehicle lockout, changing a vehicle’s flat tire in the field or giving aid & comfort to those who are in need.

   To best summarize, the impact that Officer Gettle has had on our community, in the time he has been here, it is best put by the remarks of a stranded motorist in their letter of appreciation for him as they noted, “Officer Gettle went Above and Beyond helping us”, “ESPECIALLY Officer Gettle – (you) made two trips to the tire (store) and we Thank You!”

   “We Love Living in Lake Alfred and the Police Department is a Big Reason Why.” We do appreciate Officer Gettle’s professionalism and dedication to duty that he has shown during his 15 years of service with the Lake Alfred Police Department and look forward to many more years of outstanding service from this veteran Officer.
