Detective Glenn Zirgibel was awarded 2011 Officer of the Year on Friday. It was the second time he received the honor in his nine years on Marco’s police force. He also was named Officer of the Year in 2006. The award was given by Dick Shanahan in ceremonies at Marco Island’s Police Foundation’s Lunch with the Chief at Hideaway Beach. Although Zirgibel’s selection was meant to be a surprise, he is, after all, a detective. So, he admitted, when we saw his wife and children at his table, he knew something was afoot.
