The Bulletin Notes.

Law enforcement officers are challenged daily in the performance of their duties; they face each challenge freely and unselfishly while answering the call to duty. In certain instances, their actions warrant special attention from their respective departments. The Bulletin also wants to recognize those situations that transcend the normal rigors of the law enforcement profession.

Late one night, Sergeant James Peden, Officer Hank Alexander, and Senior Police Officer Greg Dickson of the Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, Police Department responded to a stabbing incident. Upon arrival, they found that the victim had suffered multiple stab wounds in the chest. The three officers delivered first aid, applied pressure to the wounds, performed CPR, and elevated the man's feet to maintain blood pressure in his torso. Then, one officer drove the ambulance to the hospital to allow the emergency medical personnel to administer aid to the victim while en route.

Officer Joseph Greer of the Castalia, Ohio, Police Department responded to a fire at a residence. Upon arrival, he found thick smoke coming from the house. An elderly woman standing outside advised Officer Greer that her disabled daughter was still inside. Immediately, he entered the smoke-filled residence and located the victim in her bed, unable to get out. Officer Greer lifted her into a wheelchair and removed her from the house before the fire department arrived.
