Scott Frankenbach, a Sag Harbor Village police officer, was named the village’s Officer of the Year at the Jan. 26 Southampton Town Kiwanis Club’s annual banquet. The village has 13 full-time officers.

Mr. Frankenbach, a Southampton Town native, was hired in 2018 after working part time in the Southampton Town Police Department, and as a code enforcement officer for the town.

“He’s been an asset to us ever since he was hired,” said Lt. Robert Drake. “He always shows initiative and a willingness to learn.” Mr. Frankenbach is one of the department’s field training officers, which means he spends time training new recruits, teaching them how the department works.

“He’s also helped out this year with our investigations,” said Lieutenant Drake. “Some of the larceny cases he’s handled have resulted in arrests.” Mr. Frankenbach led the department in arrests and summonses in 2023.
