April 2 – April 3, 2014

Today’s Good News
The police officer’s creed is To Protect and Serve, but on Monday night Second Precinct Officer Todd Hall added Save Lives to his mission. He was one of the first officers to arrive at the scene where three individuals had been shot, one fatally. It could have easily been two deaths had it not been for the quick thinking and actions of Officer Hall. When he found one of the victims suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper left leg, he quickly applied a tourniquet to stop the blood flow.  According to VCU Medical Center staff, this injury would have been fatal had it not been for his actions that night.

“I’m incredibly proud of Officer Hall’s quick thinking and swift actions that night,” Second Precinct Captain Marty Harrison said. “Were it not for his skills, knowledge and speedy response, this citizen could have died.”

Officer Hall, a combat medic in the Navy who also has prior EMT experience and serves as the Crowd Management Team medic, recently completed the Virginia State Police tactical medic course to enhance his knowledge. The Department is proud and grateful to have such a skilled officer on the force!
