12 awarded at annual Public Safety Banquet



The firefighter credited the incident to all of the first-responders that day, thanking dispatch, Norman Police Department and EMSStat. He said he was proud of how well they all worked together as a team.

“I’m glad to be a small part of it,” he said.

For the Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office, District Attorney Greg Mashburn presented Corey Miner with an award, commending him on his hard work and dedication as a prosecutor in McClain County. Miner is a former Norman and Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer.

While it is difficult to single out just one person within the district attorney’s office to receive the award, Mashburn said Miner does a phenomenal job.

“It’s so good to see so many of my old friends in this room,” Miner said as he received his award. “I’d like to thank everybody.”

The Norman Police Department gave out three awards: Supervisor of the Year, Officer of the Year and Civilian Employee of the Year.

Lt. Jamie Shattuck received Supervisor of the Year.

Chief Keith Humphrey said Shattuck has displayed great leadership and is a truly selfless person.

Humphrey shared stories about Shattuck, including one involving a young, deaf lady who was stranded on the roadway. The young lady’s sister wrote the department, saying that Shattuck went out of his way to make sure her sister was safe, Humphrey said.

Shattuck has worked at the Norman Police Department for 17 years and said he still loves his job and is thankful to work for such a great organization.

Stacey Clement was named Officer of the Year and is the second consecutive female officer to receive the award.

“She’s full of surprises,” Humphrey said. “Don’t let her size fool you, she’s got a big heart.”

Clement has recently filled the shoes of a recruitment officer and while she had big shoes to fill, she had done an amazing job, Humphrey said. She also started the forensic internship position, which she has taken to a different level.
