In August 2017, the officer was named "Officer of the Month." He was praised at the time for "his numerous drug arrests, with four cases being sent for federal prosecution, and recovering six firearms."

The police chief asked the public to:

"Keep us in your prayers; keep Officer Tuder's family in your prayers, his wife, his mom and dad, his in-laws. This is going to be a difficult time."
