The McLean District Station Community Advisory Committee on May 16 honored Fairfax County police Pfc. Matthew Bedekovich as Officer of the Year.
Committee members, along with McLean District Station Commander Capt. Wilson Lee, honored Bedekovich during a dinner at Kazan Restaurant in McLean.
Bedekovich has worked for the Fairfax County Police Department for about five years and has spent the entirety of his career working on the Midnights A Squad at McLean District Station.
He is a field-training instructor for new officers and a member of the police department’s Search and Rescue Team.
Officials with the department’s DWI Enforcement Team recently approached him to take on additional patrols in the county in search of drunk drivers.
