Detective Honored


Apache Junction Police Detective Stephanie Jewell has been awarded the Arizona Society Sons of the American Revolution Law Enforcement Award for its Palo Verde chapter.

Jewell was honored for her professionalism and dedication which has led to several successful prosecutions, including one high profile case in which the primary suspect received a 160-year prison sentence. Jewell is currently assigned to the criminal investigations division and specializes in sex and child crimes.

The award was presented on Jan. 11 in Mesa during a breakfast ceremony where U.S. Navy Admiral James Symonds (Ret.) was the keynote speaker.  

Sons of the American Revolution is a professional organization that tries to keep the fervor with which the members’ ancestry fought for and gained our independence in 1776.  A SAR member must be able to trace a bloodline to an ancestor who helped in the Revolutionary War. Further, they must be able to document this lineage through birth, death, marriage, etc. SAR members are very proud of their heritage and they strive to serve their community through the honoring of public service and educational ventures promoting patriotism. SAR is dedicated to keep these high values, virtues and memories of their ancestors’ alive.   

“Stephanie is one of those officers that consistently strives to do her best for the department, the city and most of all the victims. This she does while thinking of how to serve the victim better and reduce the potential of re-victimization. I congratulate her receiving this prestigious recognition and SAR for their selection of a humble and appreciative recipient,” Chief Thomas E. Kelly said.
