Police: Cpl. Fraser 'Leads by Compassion'

ODESSA, Texas (Local 2/Fox 24) - The Odessa Police Department has named their officer of the month for April. 

Cpl. Travis Fraser, a nine-year-veteran with the department, took home the award and is credited with, "Lead(ing) by compassion," according to a release. 

The corporal currently serves the city in various roles, but police officials say Fraser has established himself as both a leader to the force and a mentor to other officers. 

Furthermore, Fraser is credited with finding a homeless woman setting up shelter in Optimist Park back in March. The Corporal managed to establish a friendship with the woman and eventually found her a place in a local shelter. 

Police say Fraser even helped the woman load her belongings and transport them to the shelter. 

He is also credited with foiling a purchase order theft case in April, police say. 

"Fraser is a dedicated and trustworthy officer and the citizens of Odessa should take comfort in the fact that he is one of their officers," a statement in the release reads.
