Police Officer James T.
Bristol is the Rome Police Department’s Officer of the Month for May, the department has announced.

Officials said Bristol is being honored for the award for managing a very heavy caseload over the course of May, during which he continued to aggressively pursue drug
traffickers.

Officials said Bristol conducted a traffic stop on May 4 that led to the arrest of a federal parolee for drug trafficking, who was found with a large quantity of marijuana during the traffic stop.

Officials said Bristol also uncovered a large amount of cocaine during another traffic enforcement on May 11, leading to two arrests.

Bristol joined the department in June 2014.
