Bay St. Louis Officer Named Officer Of The Year

Our congratulations to Detective Don Watson of the Bay St. Louis Police Department. Watson was named officer of the year Friday morning.

His selection was announced at the 20th annual Mississippi Coast Crime Commission and WLOX-TV law enforcement appreciation breakfast. In April, Watson was named officer of the quarter for his handling of a gun shootout in Bay St. Louis.

Giving cover to civilians and helping police form a perimeter around the shooter, the incident ended without the police firing any shots.

Watson's career dates back to 1973, giving him 28 years of experience.
