Sergeant Cesar Rodriguez has been a member of the Fishers Police Department since 2011. Throughout his time with the department, he has served many roles, such as ERT, Field Training Officer, Honor Guard Member, and Evidence Technician. Since last July, his title has been a Patrol Sergeant on night shift.

For Sergeant Rodriguez, a typical day on the job involves patrolling neighborhoods in Fishers, checking in on businesses, and responding to calls from car accidents or crimes. He loves being able to work with and serve different demographics of the community and help in any way that he can. 

Alongside serving the community of Fishers, Sergeant Rodriguez appreciates working alongside other self-motivated, driven individuals. He really values the hard work that he and other officers put into Fishers. “As a team, we’re able to develop methods to try and serve the community better, by being not only visible in the city, but also by reaching out in various capacities to youth, the elderly, and everyone in between.”

To him, being a police officer means putting the community first. He loves that for his career, he gets to pursue his passion of serving and protecting those around him. “Sometimes, we have other responsibilities that we have going on in our lives,” he says, “but when we are on duty and there are needs from the community, that’s the priority. This is a calling, and when you have a passion for it, it feels more like a luxury than a job”. 

Sergeant Cesar Rodriguez greatly values being an officer for the City of Fishers. Originally from Mexico, he likes how diverse and inclusive Fishers is to all of its residents. Along with that, his family lives here in the community. The personal attachment he feels toward their home gives him ample self-awareness and commitment to keep the community safe. 

He is proud that Fishers is a city that is self-driven, but humble enough to engage and build relationships with others. One way the Fishers Police Department is engaging with the community is through their annual National Night Out event. Make sure to mark your calendars for the Fishers Police Department’s National Night Out. From 5:30- to 7:30 PM on August 3 at the Fishers Police Department (4 Municipal Dr), enjoy children’s activities, free food, engage with your city’s officers, and so much more. Follow the Fishers Police Department on Facebook and Twitter for updates about this community event.

For all of these reasons and more, this is why Sergeant Rodriguez loves working in the heart of Fishers.
