On November 14, 2021: An Officer responded to a report of a past-tense domestic violence incident that had occurred in Monterey. The officer learned that the victim had been beaten and choked the day prior and was now staying at a hotel due to her fear of going home. While interviewing the victim, the suspect tried to learn the location of the victim through the “find my iPhone” application. The officer was able to use the application also and  learned where the suspect was. Through further investigation, the officer was able to locate a family residence in San Jose. The officer began communicating  with the San Jose Police Department, who located the suspect’s vehicle. The officer completed a warrant for the suspect, which the on-call judge approved on the first time and complimented the officer for its thoroughness and completeness. San Jose PD ultimately arrested the subject the following day pursuant to the warrant. The officer went above and beyond to ensure he took every investigative step at the patrol level possible to ensure the suspect was apprehended. The officer is commended for his hard work and dedication to this case.
