On Saturday August 9th, 2014 Officer Paul McCarthy went above and beyond the call of duty by climbing over the top guardrail of the Tobin Bridge to reach a male subject who had jumped off the bridge and was caught in the safety netting. The subject was severely injured and could have rolled off the netting. Officer McCarthy immobilized and secured the subject at great personal risk to his own safety until Fire and Rescue personnel arrived on scene.
Officer McCarthy was awarded the Life Saving Medal on Tuesday, August 12, 2014.
