February 2015 Employee of the Month

Joe Juarez

Police Department

Joe Juarez has been employed with the City of Porterville for approximately 25 years.  He was first hired by the City of Porterville in 1991 as a part-time employee in the Parks and Leisure Services Department.  In 1995 he became a full-time employee and continued to work for the Parks and Leisure Services Department, serving in a number of capacities, but primarily as the building custodian for the Police Department.  In January of 2007, Joe transferred to the Porterville Police Department, continuing his duties as building custodian, where he still works today. Joe was recently named the Police Department Civilian Employee of the year.

At the Porterville Police Department, Joe performs a myriad of duties with regard to building and grounds maintenance; so many that it would be very hard to list them all.  Joe doesn’t need to be assigned tasks – he just sees what is needed and does it. Joe has an intimate knowledge of the 25 year old building and its constant requirements to keep clean and well maintained.  His strong work ethic and attention to detail ensures that the building remains in top condition, a condition which draws positive comments from many visitors to the building.  Along with that, his helpful attitude combined with his pleasant demeanor makes Joe an outstanding employee who is well liked throughout the Department.  With that, it is often said that any person in the department can take a week off work and not many people will take notice, but if Joe is gone for only a few days, everyone notices and misses him.

Joe has three children, a daughter, Ruby, who is 19, and two sons, Anthony, who is 20, and Andrew, who is 16.  When not working for the Police Department or spending time with his family, Joe spends his time coaching the Porterville Cougars, a Pop-Warner football team and also spends time working with the Porterville High School Panthers Football Team.
