I am pleased to acknowledge the selection of Deputy Sheriff Brian Bell as Employee of the Month for April 2021.
For the past several months, Deputy Bell has been temporarily assigned to the Municipal Courts Building, where he is responsible for securing the front entryway. This is an important, but difficult task, as COVID-19 safety protocols strictly limit individuals to the building. The only parties granted access are persons applying for emergency protection from abuse orders, sex offender registrants, individuals paying fines and those subpoenaed for court hearings. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, third parties are prohibited from entering the MCB. Members of the public denied access to the building have, on many occasions, become frustrated and emotional due to these circumstances.
Supervisors state that Deputy Bell meticulously and personally screens each person attempting to enter the building, handling confrontational situations with an approach that is professional and thoughtful, yet firm. Court administrators and staff members have contacted supervisors on several instances to commend Deputy Bell’s performance and the pivotal role he plays enabling Municipal Court functions to continue in an efficient, but cautious manner. The dedication Deputy Bell devotes to this role carries over into other duties, as he continuously steps up to assist fellow deputies with warrant arrests, hospital details, prisoner escorts to the jail and a range of other miscellaneous tasks.
Deputy Bell’s supervisors laud him for treating every person he encounters with complete attentiveness and respect, representing the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office with excellence. In recognition of his work, Deputy Bell will be granted one full day off work, as long as no overtime is incurred. Please join me in congratulating Deputy Bell on a job well done!
