Firefighter of the Month

We are proud to announce that the Pearl Fire Department Firefighter of the Month in December is Captain Billy Stegall. Billy joined the fire department on January 2, 1999 and was promoted to Captain on January 10, 2014. Captain Stegall works on C Shift at Station 4 and was nominated for this award because of his initiative in taking on projects outside of his normal duties. Billy has been involved with maintenance and improvements at Station 4 as well as being an integral part of the committee for the design and production of Pearl’s newest fire engines. He recently returned from a four day trip to Wisconsin to finalize the production of these trucks which should be arriving in early 2017. Billy is married to Ashley and they have two children, Laura Keegan and Anna Brantley.

Officer of the Month

We are proud to announce that Officer Brandon Jordan was selected as the January Officer of the Month. Officer Jordan graduated from the Mississippi Challenge Academy at Camp Shelby in 2009 and later graduated from MLEOTA in 2014. Officer Jordan’s instinctive and observant style of policing ended the escapades of a serial armed robber. On December 22, 2016 while patrolling the City of Pearl, Officer Jordan spotted a suspicious vehicle on Pearson Road. The vehicle was sitting in the Subway parking lot with a male driver. Officer Jordan’s instincts told him something wasn’t right with this vehicle. He remembered a description matching the vehicle that he had just spotted. Officer Jordan waited for the vehicle to leave, developed probable cause, and stopped the car. The driver was identified and later confessed to the planning of an armed robbery at Subway. He also confessed to other robberies of multiple businesses in bordering cities, as well as several in Madison. This stop was one of the best in our department’s history.  This stop prevented an armed robbery of the Subway on Pearson Road and potentially many more.  Not only did he prevent an armed robbery in our city, he brought closure to many others. It also ended this serial robber’s crime spree. Officer Jordan demonstrates a tireless work ethic and is a very intuitive and observant Officer. We are fortunate to have him at the Pearl Police Department.

The Pearl Chamber of Commerce presented Officer Jordan with a framed certificate, a $100 Bass Pro Gift Card and a Cracker Barrel Gift Basket along with a complete meal for two. Derek Havard with McIntosh & Associates donated a $50 Logan’s Roadhouse Gift Card; Bullock Investigations donated a $25 Gift Card to Sombra Mexican Kitchen; Shane Fletcher with Farm Bureau Insurance Agency donated a $25 Visa Gift Card; McAlister’s Deli donated a meal for two; Tempstaff donated a $25 Gift Card to Bonefish Grill and Scott’s Miracle Gro donated a soft side cooler.
