Cabot mayor Bill Cypert presents patrol officer Steven Elliott a plaque noting his selection as city employee of the month for May. Last month, Elliott drew attention for his help during a funeral procession for which he blocked traffic and assisted the procession during bad weather. His manner in providing an otherwise ordinary service brought compliments to himself and to the Cabot Police Department. These highlighted Elliott’s reputation for his conduct on calls and when meeting people, especially on calls demanding a calm and reassuring presence. Many times, he has made a positive impact on a person’s life. Elliott genuinely cares about each person no matter the circumstances, and is able to change an emotionally-charged disturbance to a favorable outcome for everyone involved. Submitted photo.
