Law enforcement officers are challenged daily in the performance of their duties; they face each encounter 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.
Officer Chase Miller of the Granbury, Texas, Police Department responded to a local restaurant to help a 3-year-old boy who was not breathing. He arrived within moments and was met immediately by a woman running to him with the unresponsive child in her arms. Officer Miller carefully took the boy from the mother and immediately started CPR. Shortly after beginning, Officer Miller calmly instructed the father on how to continue chest compressions and then retrieved a breathing mask from his patrol unit. After 2 minutes of CPR, Officer Miller successfully revived the young boy, who began breathing on his own. The child received further treatment by EMS personnel and was transported to a local hospital, where he recovered. Officer Miller was formally awarded for his exceptional service in saving the life of the young boy.
