We are proud to announce that the Pearl Police Department Officer of the Month in December is Officer Robert Filbert. Robert is the School Resource Officer at Pearl Lower Elementary and has been with the Pearl PD since September 2019. He graduated from Franklin County High School in Meadville, MS and joined the U.S. Army and served for over 21 years before retiring. He attended the Police Academy at the Harrison County Training Center in Gulfport, MS. Robert requested a position as a school resource officer and immediately began building relationships with the staff and parents at the Lower Elementary. The School and City Hall have both received many compliments on Robert’s attention to detail and his positive attitude. They depend on him for everything from order in the car rider line to making everyone feel safe at all times. We are thankful to have a dedicated officer like Robert to take care of our school, staff and our precious children.
