The Iowa City police named Officer Paul Batcheller as 2010 Officer of the Year on Monday, according to a press release.

Batcheller has been with the department for 15 years, working on patrol as a field-training officer, crime-scene technician, and a member of the Special Response Team; he is also a drug-recognition expert, the release said.

Batcheller “performed at an exceptional level” throughout his career and performed well in many of Iowa City’s highest-profile cases, aided by his “extraordinary” interviewing and interrogation skills that have led to confessions and incriminating statements, the release said.

The award is typically given to an officer who exemplifies behavioral ethics that comply with the oath of honor and reflect the department positively, the release said.
