The Murrieta City Council last week honored one of the original members of the Murrieta Police Department with the presentation of a plaque of appreciation presented to Officer Jeffrey Stotts.

Stotts was one of the 25 original members of the department, which was formed in 1992 following the incorporation of the city. Stotts, who served in law enforcement for 28 years, spent the last 23 with the Murrieta Police Department. He is retiring effective July 1.

"Jeff was not only one of the first officers in our department," said Police Chief Sean Hadden during the presentation. "He is a big reason we have our own police department. He was here in the beginning and sat on the public safety committee that helped create this department."

Stotts served the department in several capacities, including work as a school resource officer for the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. In 2011, he was assigned as a patrol officer to the operations division.
