2012 Civilian Staff Member of the Year
Robin Ellis, the Administrative Assistant to the Investigative Services Division, has been nominated because of her attention to detail regarding divisional assistance. Robin always ensures divisional needs are met and she uses her knowledge and resources to accomplish tasks.
Robin has gone above and beyond her duties and responsibilities by assisting Investigator Davenport regarding precious metals investigations. These types of investigations are very tedious and time consuming for just one investigator to do. Robin took the task of organizing portfolios and keeping accurate and annual records that were needed to help the agency investigate potential violations.
An additional responsibility she has taken upon herself being able to maintain a log of Metal brokers. These metal brokers will email and fax Robin their metal / gold transactions to her.
Robin has also volunteered to call victims of property crimes not assigned to an investigator to seek additional information. This is very beneficial in that she is able to help assist getting information such as serial numbers, make and model of items that were taken, as often a victim will remember information later.
She developed a questionnaire to assist here in getting the additional information from the victim. During this time she is able to explain the investigative process for property crimes to the victim(s), and explain how the victims should contact the Sheriff’s Office, should they recall additional information.
Robin has maintained a great working atmosphere and is always a pleasure to work with. She goes the extra mile when needed and will stay late upon requests. She is very willing to help all personnel within the Investigation Division. Robin is truly an asset to the Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of Forsyth County.
