CS3 NASA Security Police Officer receives Medal of Valor Award

August 2014

In the very early morning of 18 December 2013, CS3 Kennedy Space Center Security Police Officer Supervisor, William Sibert was the primary contact officer in the arrest of a reckless driver who fled from pursuit, unlawfully and dangerously penetrated the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Restricted Area at 80 miles per hour, fled on foot to avoid apprehension, and was ultimately apprehended under force.

Officer Sibert made a safe and professional arrest of a suspect who had committed multiple criminal offenses on Kennedy Space Center and who was wanted in at least two other jurisdictions. Officer Sibert's mature, deliberate, and thoughtful execution of enforcement actions including use of force and deployment of his TASER to detain the suspect, and his clear and articulate communications with CS3 dispatch personnel were very impressive and resulted in the safe apprehension of a dangerous and known criminal.

There were other KSC officers involved in this incident, all of whom contributed to the successful arrest. Officer Sibert’s actions and those of his co-workers reflect great credit on CS3's KSC security forces, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The ceremony was held on August 20, 2014, Melbourne, Florida.
