Officer Pete Milinkovic was selected as the February employee of the month for his dedication to the department’s mission and his willingness to assist in keeping our campus safe, even while he was injured. While assigned to light duty because of that injury, Officer Milinkovic assisted with crime prevention, emergency planning and investigative work. According to the UIPD detective sergeant, Officer Milinkovic “proved to be the hardest worker I’ve seen in a very long time.” He closed out a number of old cases, solved some new ones, and even found time to help train new recruits. He also assisted with evidence documentation and packaging. Although it’s called “light duty,” Officer Milinkovic still worked hard to serve the campus community even though injury prevented him from patrolling on the street. His efforts during the past several weeks are exemplary and a reflection of his dedication to protecting our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
