Sgt. Daniel Klatt of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department is recognized as an outstanding officer by Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel.

Earlier this year Sgt. Klatt located a 16-year-old girl who was lured away from her home by a 39-year-old convicted sex offender. According to McDaniel, Klatt quickly recognized the girl to be a likely victim of Internet crime, and used phone and Internet records to identify the suspect.

Klatt spent hours scouring phone records and geo-location data to track the suspect’s movements, and also worked with other law enforcement agencies to apprehend the suspect and the recover the victim safely.

Klatt is one of 4 outstanding officers named by the Attorney General in addition to the Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year – Cpl. John Eidson of the Jonesboro Police Department.
