Cape Girardeau Police name their Employee of the Year

Congratulations to Cape Girardeau Police Patrolman Jim Zeidler on being named Police Department Employee of the Year!

He was chosen because of his ability to collect evidence.

Zeidler was specifically recognized for his work collecting fingerprint evidence in the May, 2015 case of a kidnapped woman that was sexually assaulted and found safe hours later.

Ptlm. Zeidler’s find was key in getting the suspect to enter a guilty plea in the case.

Chief Wes Blair says Zeidler is the “go-to” officer in his platoon and went on to say, “Ptlm. Zeidler is both a team player who willingly assists when needed, and a leader to the younger officers who need advice or instruction. His attention to detail when processing scenes for evidence is remarkable. He is a tremendous asset to our Department.”

Ptlm. Zeidler has been in the Patrol Division all eight years that he’s been with the department.
