March Employee of the Month - Benjamin Sites

The Franklin County Commissioners on behalf of the STAR Committee (Special Thanks And Recognition) proudly present the Employee of the Month award to Mr. Benjamin Sites.     Mr. Benjamin (Ben) Sites has been employed with the County’s Sheriff’s Department since February of 2011. He currently serves as a Deputy Sheriff Sergeant. The selection for the March 2018 Employee of the Month was determined by the STAR Committee. There were a total of 18 nominations.     The STAR nomination form asks what recent event or occurrence made you select Ben and the answers include:     “Recently, Sgt. Sites and another Deputy spotted a stolen vehicle that was being sought by the Chambersburg Police Department. They were able to conduct a traffic stop on the stolen vehicle and apprehended the subject. Within the same week, Sgt. Sites spotted a wanted subject standing on the sidewalk. When an approach was made, the subject ran, but was later apprehended by Sgt. Sites and other Deputies. Also within this same week, Sgt. Sites was part of locating a marijuana growing operation inside a house. Another incident took place within this same week to which Sgt. Sites planned to set up a wanted person. His leadership skills in developing a plan to apprehend this subject were well thought-out and the subject was apprehended without incident.”      “Sgt. Sites is always willing to help others, not only in the Sheriff’s Office, but within the community as well. Ben volunteers a lot of his time mentoring the youth. He is someone whom the Deputies in the Office look up to, not only for work, but for life guidance as well.  Sgt. Sites is one of the most passionate people I know of when it comes to doing the job right, but doing it safely, as well. Ben is the Lead Firearms Instructor, and he takes on a lot of other roles that make him a great leader.”     Sgt. Sites’ outstanding characteristics are attributes that have not gone unnoticed by his peers. The nomination form described him as a person with strong leadership abilities who is professional, and passionate about his work.      We are grateful to Mr. Benjamin Sites as he exudes a high standard of customer service, excellence and respect to the employees and residents of Franklin County.
