Sgt. James Cardarella has been selected as the Southeast District’s Supervisor of the Year. In March of 2012 he took over a Flex Unit that concentrates in a specific area within the Southeastern District. Since then, his squad has seized 26 firearms including handguns and rifles.

This is a significant increase from this squad, which seized one handgun throughout all of 2011. Sgt. Cardarella’s leadership has been the only difference between the two years. The Southeast District feels that this shows that Sergeant Cardarella has influenced his men to step to a higher level and target people carrying illegal firearms.
