City Commission recognizes Weslaco Crime Stoppers Officer of the Year

Congratulations to Weslaco Police Department officer Aaron Martinez on being named Weslaco Crime Stoppers Officer of the Year!

This month, the Mayor and Weslaco City Commission presented Officer Martinez with a proclamation recognizing his achievement.

In July 2021, Officer Martinez responded to a crash involving a motorcyclist and another vehicle. The motorcyclist suffered a major injury, and because of Officer Martinez’s quick thinking, he applied a tourniquet and instructed other officers to call paramedics. The ER doctor who treated the injured motorcyclist credited Officer Martinez with saving the motorcyclist’s life!

Officer Martinez is known to be a caring role model and leader within the department.
