WHEREAS, The quality  and  sanctity  of  community  life  are  cherished
values,  worthy of safeguarding; this Legislative Body is moved to honor

designation  as  the recipient of a Superintendent's Commendation Award;
and
  WHEREAS, A Trooper since November 28, 1994, he will receive the  award
in  recognition  of  his  outstanding police work at the 37th Annual New

to be held at the New York State Police Academy in Albany  on  Thursday,

  WHEREAS,  On  August  18,  2012,  Investigator  Jones  investigated  a

juvenile's computer files for possible leads; and
  WHEREAS, Investigator Jones was able to  identify  an  individual  who
assisted the juvenile in running away from an online chat room the juve-
nile  had visited; utilizing this IP address, and with the assistance of

being  held  captive  in a cage and the man holding her was arrested and
charged with Rape in the First Degree with federal and New York  charges
pending; and
  WHEREAS,  In  keeping with the finest traditions of the New York State
Police, Investigator Christopher A. Jones has distinguished  himself  by
his  exemplary  achievement and outstanding performance on behalf of the
community he so faithfully and courageously serves; and
  WHEREAS, The dedicated efforts of public servants,  such  as  Investi-
gator  Christopher  A.  Jones, who unselfishly devote their lives to the
preservation of order and the protection of others  are  worthy  of  the
full  praise of this Legislative Body and the people of the State of New
York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  Investigator Christopher A. Jones upon the occasion of his desig-
nation as the recipient of a Superintendent's Commendation Award at  the
37th  Annual  New  York  State  Police Superintendent's Commendation and
Awards Day Ceremony on May 16, 2013; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Investigator Christopher A. Jones.
