Officer For The Month: December 2012

During the month of December, Officers Travis Layton and Darnell Willis collectively carried out an abundance of radio assignments; selective special assignments; and made numerous arrests.

On one assignment in particular, these officers investigated a call for a possible armed, but suicidal individual. When they arrived at the address, a male answered and stood at the door entrance, with one hand behind his back.  Fearing this subject was holding a weapon; these officers simultaneously drew their weapons, and ordered him to slowly remove his hand from behind his back with orders if he was holding a gun, to keep the weapon pointed at the floor and place the weapon on the floor.

The individual slowly revealed his hand, displaying a 357 revolver, with the hammer locked to the rear. After a few brief moments the individual agreed to follow the officer’s commands and placed the gun on the floor. The individual was taken into protective custody and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Their observations and attention to safety resulted in this encounter ending peacefully with no injuries.  Congratulations Officer Travis Layton and Darnell Willis.
