MORRISTOWN, NJ (Morris County) – Acting Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll and Chief of Detectives Christoph Kimker Monday presented a commendation to Detective Supervisor Spence Osaigbovo for his efforts in helping a distraught woman in crisis.

On April 23, Detective Supervisor Osaigbovo was contacted by a distraught, former victim, who advised the officer that she had just ingested pills in an effort to take her own life.  Osaigbovo talked to the individual over the phone, keeping her calm and obtaining crucial information to ascertain her location.

Osaigbovo is being commended for his commitment to duty, ability to remain calm and recognize the importance of dealing with individuals with mental health issues.

“We commend Det.
