We are pleased to announce that Sergeant Dixon has received the VFW Post #3516 “Officer of the Year”
award. Sergeant Dixon was nominated by Undersheriff Trafecanty and given his award on Wednesday
(1/11) by the VFW Post Commander.

Sergeant Dixon began his career with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office in 2014. As a Patrol Deputy,
Dixon handled numerous calls for service and received many compliments from the citizens of Mohave
County for his professionalism and courteousness. In 2017, Deputy Dixon was transferred into our
Detectives Division where his work ethic and investigative skills continued to be second to none. These
outstanding traits were key in solving many complex and difficult crimes.

In one such case, Detective Dixon investigated the homicide of a young female adult. Although initially there
was no body, location of the crime or solid evidence, Detective Dixon followed every lead, collected every
trace of evidence, and interviewed countless individuals. Through his tedious investigative process,
Detective Dixon discovered that the homicide had most likely occurred in an extremely remote desert area of
Maricopa County. With his sizable case file in hand, Detective Dixon met with his counterparts at the
Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Detective Dixon briefed the other Detectives on his findings and probable
location of the victim’s remains. Armed with Detective Dixon’s investigation file, The Maricopa County
Sheriff’s Detectives successfully located the victim and continued the investigation in their jurisdiction. For
his unwavering dedication and commitment to this homicide case, Detective Dixon received the Mohave
County Sheriff’s Office “Award of Merit”.

In October of 2022, Detective Dixon was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. As a Sergeant, Dixon is
assigned to lead a squad of Patrol Deputies in the Kingman Area and will pass on his knowledge and
expertise to his new squad. Sergeant Dixon has proven himself to be a dedicated and selfless public
servant and we are proud to see him awarded for his efforts.
