The American Legion will name a Belgrade Police Officer as Montana Officer of the Year.

Officer Jarrod Robinson has been a patrol officer for 15 years, 10 years with the Belgrade Police Department.

He was nominated by his peers, who say Robinson is a well-rounded officer and exceeds the expectations of his position.

Robinson says they're great people and he couldn't have done it without them.

He says it's truly an honor to be recognized.

"Evidently, they went through the applications and decided on me and I don't know how they did that but it's very humbling," says Robinson.

Robinson will travel to Lewistown with his family on Thursday to accept the award.
