Life Saving Incident
August 26, 2022
On Friday, August 26, 2022, Sgt. Michael Rhodes, while working the second shift responded to a 911 call of an unresponsive male.
Upon arrival, Sgt. Rhodes observed an unresponsive individual at the residence. This individual had already turned a bluish-purple color and was not breathing. A family member had begun CPR on the male. Sgt. Rhodes without hesitation accessed the situation and immediately administered two doses of Narcan to the victim. Once Narcan was administered to the victim, the victim began breathing on his own.
Sergeant Rhodes’ actions epitomize the best Police Officer qualities of motivation, commitment and selfless service. His exceptional and timely efforts in rendering medical aid to an unresponsive victim was very instrumental in saving this individual’s life.
The history of law enforcement in the United States is a long and wonderful history of bravery. This website is dedicated to documenting the heroic deeds of law enforcement officers throughout the United States who have either given or risked their lives to save others. There are many stories of bravery and heroism for many who are considered first responders. However, it is those in law enforcement who are most likely to be the first to arrive upon a location requiring life saving acts engaging dangerous hostage takers, running into burning buildings/vehicles, providing first aid to seriously injured victims, saving near drowning victims and much more are what the women and men of law enforcement do routinely and at many times, great peril to their own safety.
It is our mission to document the history of lives saved by those dedicated women and men in law enforcement. To share with others the dramatic deeds of those individuals who are the first, first responders. It is so important for our citizens to understand that law "enforcement" is not always about enforcing the law but rather being there when our citizens need us.
It is to this end we are dedicated to promoting documentation regarding the history of law enforcement and the lives they have saved.
