Murrieta Police Sgt. Jay Froboese was honored by the City Council and praised by all who spoke about him Tuesday night upon his retirement from the police force after 20 years of service.

Froboese played a key role in the police department's traffic unit, both in helping create the unit and as a patrol officer for years. He was named the department's Officer of the Year in 2005.

"Jay has done a lot for the traffic unit," said Captain Rob Firmes. "He basically built it from the ground up. But beyond his fine work as a police officer, he's a really good friend."

Firmes told of the time when he was seriously injured during a motorcycle ride in Idaho -- a trip that included Froboese. He said Froboese asked for a week off work to stay in Idaho and help Froboese rehabilitate for a quicker return home.

Each of the five council members spoke of their appreciation for Froboese's service. Mayor Rick Gibbs presented him with a proclamation from the City, saying, "It has been an honor and a privilege to call you my friend."

John Hunneman, representing State Senator Jeff Stone's office, presented Froboese with a proclamation, and he received a watch from the City.

"Jay is the epitome of partnering with the community," Murrieta resident Kassen Klein told council members and the audience during the presentation.
