Numerous Written Police Commendations
"I worked with Ed Dobbertin for many years at the Patagonia Marshal's office and he was very professional in performing the duties of the Chief of Police even with all the negatives that were being thrown at him while he was there. I enjoyed working with him as a LEA officer and that he was always watching my back when I was out there performing my duties with my fellow officers."
