We are proud to announce that Officer Andrew Thompson has received a lifesaving American Heart Association award for his quick thinking and skilled actions on duty.

On 11/3/19 at 4:39am, Officer Thompson responded to a medical emergency call involving an unresponsive 49-year-old female who was not breathing. Upon arrival, Officer Thompson began performing CPR until the Chatham Fire Department/EMS arrived on scene and began advanced life saving measures. The female was transported to the hospital and the outcome did not appear good. However, Officer Thompson followed up with her family members a few days later and learned that the female was responsive and showing signs of recovery.

Officer Thompson is to be commended for his actions that night. Well done!
