Creating and Maintaining Multiple Databases Earns Employee Honors

Posted: 04/24/2012
Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Police Chief David Rausch today named Mary Lewis the February Civilian Employee of the Month for the Knoxville Police Department. Ms. Lewis has been with KPD since August 2008.

Chief Rausch said the department's Inspections Unit was tasked with accepting and processing applications for businesses which fall under the secondhand store ordinance.

Ms. Lewis took the initiative to create and manage multiple databases to track the status of applications, stores regulated by the ordinance, and details from the applications.

Chief Rausch said, "Ms. Lewis is actively involved in the processing of the applications by personally ensuring the proper delivery of the submissions. Ms. Lewis also attended the community roundtable to disseminate information to the businesses affected by the ordinance." Ms. Lewis consistently contributes ideas on the administrative processes used by the inspections unit in her continuing effort to improve efficiency.

Chief Rausch said, "Due to Ms. Lewis' efforts and initiatives, the transition into the new secondhand store ordinance has been easier for the unit as well as for the businesses."

Mayor Rogero said, "We appreciate the efforts of Ms. Lewis and congratulate he on a job well done."
