Sgt. Ramdath named Bradenton officer of the month

June 3, 2014 

BRADENTON -- The Bradenton Police Department named Sgt. Anthony Ramdath the officer of the month for June 2014.

Captain William B. Fowler credited Ramdath's professionalism and dedication to duty as the reason for the honor, according to a release. Fowler pointed to a situation where Ramdath worked to find a missing adult as proof of those qualities.

Ramdath was off duty and at home when a neighbor approached him and said her 78-year-old father who suffered from dementia was missing, according to the release. Ramdath called in to report issue at 12:18 a.m. on April 25 and worked to find the man on foot despite being off-duty.

Eventually, Ramdath personally located the missing man.

He said to on-duty officers while looking, "It’s my neighbor, it doesn’t matter whether I’m on or off duty, I am going to help find him.”
