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.
A middle-aged man left his doctor’s office and shortly after getting in his car went into diabetic shock. His vehicle ended up near downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.
Corporals Billy Pike and Brad Duerr and Officer Ahmad Marion of the University of Tennessee Police Department (UTPD) saw the slow-moving vehicle and attempted to pull it over.
After realizing that the driver was unresponsive, they broke the window to stop the vehicle and quickly called for medical assistance. After the incident, the man’s daughter-in-law wrote to the UTPD to commend the officers for their actions.
