Dothan Police Officer Bobby Ashley
The primary responding officer to this call is Dothan Patrol Officer Bobby Ashley. With about 22 years of Dothan Police Officer service with the Dothan Police Department, Officer Ashley is the man to solve the robbery calls. Officer Ashley has spent his 22 years developing contacts. Those contacts lead to information which leads to the identification of suspects.
Our bragging on Officer Ashley is not to downgrade any other officer. However, solving crime depends on information. Information comes from people. This is just a message to other officers and new officers, law enforcement is not about "how many people you can arrest" or "how many tickets an officer can write". Often times to make a good law enforement officer, it is about building relationships that brings about information, which that information helps you prevent a crime or solve a crime.
Officer Ashley is one that has contacts to get information.
