CONNOR HENRY

NORTHBOROUGH PD, MA

"Officer Connor Henry was sent to a call for service regarding an elderly resident's car that was stuck in her driveway after a recent snowfall. He arrived and began to shovel her driveway. He asked for another officer to come to his location where they both completed clearing her driveway. The photo was taken by Officer Daniel Murphy as he arrived to help."

 

LENTZ & SLOAN

MOORE PD, OK

"Ms. Hicks, having just picked up her new pooch, had to make an emergency stop at the PD after the precocious pup got stuck under the backseat of her car on the way home. Officers Lentz and Sloan delicately extricated the little guy."

 

OFFICER ANDRADE

FALL RIVER PD, MA

"This morning had been a cold one, so when Fall River PD, Officer Andrade, saw one of our patrons walking in the cold to come to our pantry, he picked her up and brought her to us. Huge shoutout to this officer keeping our patrons safe."

 

TYRONE BUTLER

EAST JEFFERSON LEVEE DISTRICT POLICE, LA

"Our night shift had an ALPR hit and soon located the vehicle. The driver was taken into custody and it was discovered that the driver was an UBER eats employee. Our Lieutenant, Tyrone Butler, took possession of the food and made the delivery to the awaiting customer. I can only imagine their reaction when he pulled up to make the delivery."

 

JENNIFER JONES

RIVIERA BEACH PD, FL

"Officer Jones responded to a call from a social worker about a young mother with her 2 month old and 3 year old sleeping in various areas of the city. Instead of just documenting the facts and taking the report, Officer Jones took it upon herself to actually help this family - she used her own money to purchase diapers, food, and other necessities they were in need of."

 

DEMARIO CHAVIS

ELON PD, NC

"Sergeant Chavis responded to the home of an elderly Elon resident for a medical call. Once on scene, he realized the citizen suffered from mobility issues and required home health care which failed to report due to the inclement weather. Sergeant Chavis got the citizen dressed / settled in her wheelchair. Going the extra mile Sergeant Chavis contacted "Always Best Care Senior Services" and spoke with a manager, who arranged for an employee to stay with our citizen. Due to the ice and snow, the employee did not feel comfortable driving, so Sergeant Chavis responded to her residence and gave her a ride to the Elon resident's home."

 

BRANDON RACE

GASTON COUNTY PD, NC

"Officer Race was dispatched to a non-emergency call stating that a flower had been taken. The "victim" was a child with special needs, so Officer Race showed up to the scene to help. The "missing" flower had actually been found right before Officer Race arrived, but the special needs child and his friend were happy to see him and started asking him a bunch of questions about his car and equipment."

TJ CONKLIN

NEW YORK STATE POLICE

"Trooper Conklin was called to check on an elderly man at a rest stop. The man had been traveling with family and they accidentally left him there. The elderly man didn't have his wallet or cellphone with him, so without the family member's phone numbers, Trooper Conklin had a hard time trying to contact his relatives to let them know they left him behind. Trooper Conklin was finally able to get in contact with an out-of-state relative and they were able to contact the elderly man's family. The family and the elderly man were reunited in Roscoe, New York, where they all met for dinner at a local diner."

STEPHEN GREESON

ELON PD, NC

"While taking a coffee break at a local convenient store, MPO Stephen Greeson overhead a lady who was trying to get back on her feet after a recent divorce. She said she was traveling from Ashe County, NC back to her home in Apex, NC (a 200 mile journey). She was seeking temporary shelter for one night while passing through, so MPO Greeson called the communications center and inquired about shelters in the area. All of the shelters were full and/or had quarantine policies due to COVID. The lady had $50 to spare for a motel, but even that wasn't enough to pay for a room, so MPO Greeson escorted the lady to the Best Western nearby and paid for a room in FULL, which allowed her to keep the $50 she had on hand."

 

JESSE WHITTEN

SANTA ROSA PD, CA

"A few years ago, while Officer Whitten was on patrol, he met a pregnant woman who desperately needed some help. She was actually looking for a family and a home for her unborn baby. Officer Whitten was already the proud father of 3 girls, but he did not hesitate and immediately opened his heart and his home to this baby. Once the baby was born and a moving adoption hearing was done, the baby officially became a part of Officer Whitten's family! Officer Whitten is now a proud father of 4 girls."

FOREST GOULD

BURKE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE, GA

"The Burke County EMA was dispatched to assist a laceration incident. As the EMS crew arrived on scene, they found a man laying face up in the yard with Deputy Gould rendering aid to him. Deputy Gould had applied a tourniquet and was wrapping a large open wound on the man's calve with a padded pressure dressing. A large amount of blood was lost on scene and the man began to show signs of shock when he was loaded into the unit. The EMA team believes that had Deputy Gould not applied a tourniquet and pressure bandage on the man's leg, that he would have most likely bled to death before EMS arrived."

HALEY MAGEE

HAMPTON PD, NH

"While on patrol, Officer Haley Magee was parked in a lot and all of a sudden heard the sound of "screeching tires". As she pulled out of the lot to investigate, she saw a black vehicle right in front of her that starting to veer off the road. As she got closer to the vehicle, she saw where it had suddenly smashed into a large tree and then heard a woman screaming. The car started smoking, so Officer Magee immediately tried to get the woman out of the car. Due to the severity of damage to the vehicle, Magee was not sure how to get her out, but she reacted quickly and used her Maglite flashlight to smash the rear window open. Before the vehicle caught fire, Officer Magee was able to move the victim to her cruiser to take care of her until the Hampton Fire Department arrived to put out the fire and take the woman to the hospital."

 

CHRISTOPHER KANE
STEPHEN THOMSON 
XHULJIO HYSA
JOSEPH DILIEGRO
REVERE BEACH, MA

"The State Police Barracks on Revere Beach had received multiple calls reporting a fire at a high-rise apartment building. Troopers Christopher Kane (State Police Barracks), Stephen Thomson (State Police Barracks), Xhulijo Hysa (Logan Airport Barracks), and Joseph Diliegro (MSP Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section) arrived at the scene and immediately entered the burning building. Trooper Thomson climbed to the 15th floor (which was right above the fire) to evacuate residents. Troopers Kane and Diliegro went to the 12th floor and started evacuating residents from that floor down. As Trooper Hysa was trying to evacuate other parts of the building and encountered an elderly woman who was helping her child in a wheelchair. Trooper Hysa escorted the woman and her son out of the building safely. As all troopers were exiting the building, about 30 minutes in, they learned that an elderly man was still on the 6th floor who was on oxygen and unable to get out of the building on his own. Troopers Thomson and Kane ran back into the building to where he was and with the help of Revere Firefighters, they were able to remove him from the building and sent him to EMS personnel who were ready to treat him with an oxygen system. All four Troopers sustained some degree of exposure to smoke and carbon monoxide and were treated at a nearby hospital."

ALEX XIARHOS
YARMOUTH PD, MA

"Officer Xiarhos was dispatched to a nearby residence for a welfare check. The resident is visually impaired and did not have the resources to maintain her yard, so after meeting with the resident and seeing the condition of her property, Officer Xiarhos organized a yard clean up crew. A group of Yarmouth PD officers and family members met on Saturday (June 18th) and spent several hours cutting brush, mowing the lawn, and removing various debris around the house. Officer Xiarhos not only spearheaded the entire project, but he was also able to secure a donated piece of equipment to help cut the heavy brush around the resident's home that needed to be removed."

MATTHEW BODWELL
IPSWICH POLICE, MA

"While on patrol near the Clark Beach mooring area, Officer Bodwell (who is an experienced mariner and assists the police department with harbormaster duties) heard a "mayday" alert over the marine radio with a message that said a vessel had capsized in the mooring field and people were in the water in distress. Officer Bodwell arrived on scene as quickly as he could and saw a man out in the water waving for help. Bodwell was able to rescue a pregnant woman first, followed by a second woman, a 14-month old little girl, and then 2 men. Officer Bodwell evaluated each of them and learned that they had all fallen into the water after their aluminum boat capsized in rough water. Bodwell alerted the Ipswich dispatch and the US Coast Guard to let them know that all of the victims were out of the water and safe. An ambulance was dispatched to a nearby dock and was waiting for them."

MICHAEL HICKSON
BURKE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE, GA

"On July 4th, Deputy Michael Hickson responded to an animal attack call where a 2 year old child was mauled by a stray pit bull. The attack caused injuries to both sides of the child's face and shoulder. Deputy Hickson took it upon himself to purchase a brand new bicycle for the young child knowing how traumatized he would be after this horrific event."

DAVID MCCOY
DESOTO COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT, MS

"One day, Sergeant David McCoy met a man by the name of Dan Williams (age 57) sitting in front of a Wendy's in Horn Lake. When Sergeant McCoy found out that he was down on his luck and hungry, he walked inside and offered to buy the man lunch. The Wendy's management would not let him pay though, because they ended up covering the man's lunch instead. As Sergeant McCoy sat down and ate lunch with Mr. Williams, he found out that he did not have any money or a phone, so he has been trying to catch as many rides as he can from Ohio in an attempt to get down to Louisiana to be with his family. Sergeant McCoy could tell that Mr. Williams had a good heart and wanted to help him, so he teamed up with Deputies Brea, Garrett, and Andrews and they all pulled money out of their own pockets to buy Mr. Williams an $89 Greyhound bus ticket to get home. They also gave him an additional $60 for some food and necessities. Sergeant McCoy said Mr. Williams broke down and cried as he was being dropped off at the bus station. Mr. Williams looked over at Sergeant McCoy and said, "Out of all the people that reached out to help me in my time of need, it was the cops. Thank you!"
