Remington College Online Criminal Justice Instructor Lt. Jon Shaw Named Officer of the Year

Jonathan (Jon) Shaw, a faculty member of Remington College’s Criminal Justice online degree programs and a Lieutenant with the Margate (FL) Police Department, has received outstanding recognition from local, state, regional, and international organizations for his performance in the line of duty.

Lt. Shaw commanded a multi-agency abduction investigation in June 2012 that led to the apprehension of a child predator and the safe return of the victim within 20 hours of her disappearance. He was instrumental in rescuing the child, who was abducted from her home by a suspect who contacted her through a video game.

In recognition of his performance, Lt. Shaw received the Margate Police Officer of the Year award for 2012.

The Fort Lauderdale Chapter of ASIS has more than 200 members, comprised of security practitioners and law enforcement personnel from throughout South Florida.

Lt. Shaw’s ASIS award was presented at the Chapter’s 2013 Law Enforcement Appreciation Banquet. The award was given for “outstanding performance in the line of duty, normally associated with the significant arrest of an individual or individuals who threaten the welfare of the community.”

Lt. Shaw was also recognized at the 15th annual “Missing Children’s Day” at the Florida Capitol, hosted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) on September 9, 2013, in Tallahassee, FL.
