Last week, Lieutenant Jonathan Zitzmann with the Madisonville Police Department was named the 100 Club of Houston's Officer of the Year.
Police Chiefs from 18 counties all made their recommendations and nominated officers so the selection could be made.
Zitzmann has been with the police department for 15 months and was recently promoted to lieutenant. His father has been with the Houston Police Department for more than 32 years.
Zitzmann is the youngest lieutenant the department has ever seen, and the first from Madisonville PD to receive the 100 Club award.
