National Police Week

“National Police Week" was enacted October 1, 1962 in the Congress of the United States. This resolution authorized the President of the United States, then John F. Kennedy, to proclaim the calendar week of May 15th each year as Police Week. Each year people across the country gather during the week to honor those who serve their communities through law enforcement and to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

On October 23, 2105 at 1:42 A.M., Sgt. Marc Gottlick was dispatched to a home on LaGrande Avenue for a medical call of a child birth.  Upon arrival he was met by screams coming from the upstairs of the home.  He proceeded to a second floor bathroom where he observed the victim lying on the floor and child's head crowning. He then gave support to the child's head, and then noticed the umbilical court wrapped around the child's neck.  He immediately placed your fingers between the umbilical cord and the child's neck preventing the cord from strangling the child.  He then gave a slight pull on the babies lower shoulder which allowed him to deliver the baby.  The baby was then dried and wrapped in towels, and then administered oxygen by Ptlm. Gilmore.  The baby was then transported to Overlook Hospital.
