• Born to be a Pacific Grove Police Officer

    Officer Jeff Haas honored

    At the Monterey County Peace Officer of the Year dinner Feb. 17, Pacific Grove Police Department honored Officer Jeff Haas as Officer of the Year.

    Each police agency in Monterey County selects an officer to be honored.

    A Pacific Grove native and graduate of Pacific Grove High School, Officer Haas also graduated from Monterey Peninsula College Police Academy in Aug., 2005. He started his law enforcement carrier in 2002 with the Seaside Police Department as a Police Services Assistant and worked there for nearly 3 years.

    Haas became a full time police officer with the City of Pacific Grove on December 17, 2005. Last January, he was selected to be a Field Training Officer.

    It appears that Jeff Haas was born to be a police officer. When he was born, his family rented a house at 580 Pine Avenue in Pacific Grove and that is the address on Jeff’s birth certificate. Address sound familiar? The family moved from 580 Pine Avenue because the house was torn down to build the Pacific Grove Police Department, located at 580 Pine Avenue.

    Says Chief Darius Engles, “Officer Haas was chosen as PGPD’s Officer of the Year for his commitment to the Department, his quality of work, his developed expertise in the field of law enforcement, his willingness to help fellow officers, and his service to the community.”
