Posted on July 10, 2015 by Joy Washington
The University of South Alabama Police Department recognizes Officer Mallory A. Ambrose, who recently graduated with honors from the Alabama Advanced Criminal Justice Academy’s Police-Basic Training in Montgomery.
“Ambrose not only graduated with the highest academic average in her class,” said USA Police Chief Zeke Aull, “but she also completed the academy with the highest academic average that any of the academy instructors could ever remember, which is 99.3 percent out of 100.”
Ambrose was acknowledged during the graduation exercise with a plaque, which stated that she was being honored in recognition of outstanding merit and accomplishment during basic police training.
“The support I receive from my family is what inspires me to achieve excellence,” Ambrose said. “They have always encouraged me in my endeavors, and I strive to do my best to make them proud.”
Ambrose received her bachelor’s degree from USA and a master’s degree from the University of Central Florida. Both degrees are in criminal justice. Ambrose is assigned to the patrol division of the USAPD.
“I am passionate about law enforcement because it’s a selfless profession that provides great opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others,” Ambrose noted. “I love that my job includes helping others and serving my community.”
The mission of the USAPD is to meet the unique law enforcement needs of the University community. USAPD engages in community-oriented policing that actively encourages input from the community and utilizes innovative crime interdiction, prevention and public education methods to foster a safe environment on campus.
