At last night’s Gillette City Council meeting, two Gillette police officers were cited for one of the many examples of police officers saving lives. Gillette Police Chief, Jim Hloucal said the September 15th, event started as a EMS call.
“A little after 7:30 in the morning, two of our officers, Officer Jacob Foutch and Officer Steve Dillard responded to a medical emergency here in the city of a 58 year old man who was having a medical crises. When the officers arrived the gentleman wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a heartbeat. They took life saving measures using CPR and an AED and were able to resuscitate the man and he has since fully recovered and is back enjoying life and spending time with his family.---Hloucal
Officers Fouch and Officer Dillard were presented with the Police Departments Life Saving Award and Metal. Gillette Police Officers being recognized for saving lives has happened many times before.
You can recognize these officers by spotting metals on their uniform.
“We award them a metal that they can wear on their dress uniform, but on their day to day uniform they wear a red bar just above the name tag above the right chest.”---Hloucal
