                    in the house of representatives

                        Thursday, March 28, 2019

  Mr. GIANFORTE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor Troy McGee of 
Helena for his four decades of public service in the Helena Police 
Department, including nearly 23 years as chief of police.
   Growing up in the community he would serve, Troy graduated from 
Helena High School in 1971 and Carroll College in 1975.
   Troy began his career with the Helena Police Department in 1975 and 
worked his way through the ranks. After nearly 20 years in the 
department, Troy was promoted to police chief in August 1996.
   Throughout his career, Troy was dedicated to law enforcement safety 
and training in Montana. He has contributed his time, experience, and 
perspective to several organizations, including the Montana Attorney 
General's Law Enforcement Advisory Council, the Montana Peace Officers 
Standards and Training Council, and the Montana Law Enforcement Academy 
Advisory Board. He also has advocated for law enforcement with the 
Montana Chiefs of Police Association and the Montana Police Officers 
Protective Association.
   As Helena's chief of police, Troy created stronger relationships 
between his department and the community. He also bolstered the city's 
relationship with other law enforcement agencies. His commitment to 
coordination and partnership led the city's police department to work 
with the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff's Department to form a joint 
SWAT team.
   Troy has dedicated his life to the well-being of his community and 
law enforcement officers throughout our state. On behalf of the people 
of Montana, thank you for your service, Chief McGee.
   Madam Speaker, for his decades of outstanding service and for his 
dedication to public safety, law enforcement, and his community, I 
recognize Troy McGee for his spirit of Montana.
