Sergeant Eddie Dilbeck Recognized for Service on MPD Special Response Team
Patrol Sergeant Eddie Dilbeck was recognized for his dedicated service to the Morristown Police Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) at their December training; he served on the team for more than 18 years.
While serving on the Special Response Team, Sergeant Dilbeck worked his way up from an Operator to Sniper, then Sniper Team Leader and finally Assistant SRT Commander. Lieutenant King stated, “It takes dedication to the citizens of Morristown to be on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; to receive a call and be on scene in a matter of minutes for an unspecified amount of time. I cannot recall a time in his 18 years he was called out and did not respond.”
Sergeant Dilbeck has more than 21 years of service in Law Enforcement; he has been with the Morristown Police Department since October 14, 1996. He was promoted to Corporal in October 2013 and then promoted to Sergeant in July 2014. Dilbeck has served on various teams throughout his career, as well as being a School Resource and D.A.R.E. Officer. He is currently on the Traffic Crash Investigation Team and is one of the MPD’s Firearm Instructors.
