John Desizlets, formerly of Bemidji, was honored by the North Little Rock February with the North Little Rock Chief's Award.

Desizlets, a detective, and the son of Glen and Gloria Desizlets of Bemidji, cleared 82 percent of his cases in 2009 through what was described as methodical police work. Desizlets works in the investigations division and trains other detectives in new technology acquired by the department. He also teaches property crime investigations to department recruits, along with the Citizen's Police.
