Officers Save Man During a Traffic Stop


On April 5, 2015 FTO Neese received a call from a friend about an erratic driver. He was able to catch up with the driver, who turned out to be Mr. Orange. After some difficulty getting Mr. Orange to realize he was being signaled to stop, FTO Neese and Cpl. Santos determined that he was not intoxicated, but rather was medically impaired. It took some convincing, but Mr. Orange agreed to go with EMS to the hospital. It was later relayed to Mr. Orange by his doctors that the actions of the officers involved, to include stressing the need for him to receive medical attention quickly, likely saved his life. Mr. Orange recently came by the police department to thank FTO Neese and Cpl. Santos for their quick actions.
