Heroics Continued from page 6
sometimes dangerous situations during the past year and in some previous years. Officer Nathan Boislard received a commendation for disarming an intoxicated man at a bar in June. Responding to a medical call, Boislard found a man armed with a .45-caliber pistol. He refused Boislard’s commands to remove his hand from the grip of the gun and responded, “You’re not getting it.” Boislard wrestled him to the ground and forcibly disarmed him.
“The 25 people in that bar were definitely in danger,” Pocock said. Sgt. Jason Watson, officers Chris Lamarre, John Mahon, Thomas Gorr, and David Carbone and K-9 Arno also received commendations during “a highly dynamic, dangerous situation,” according to Pocock, one week later, when a man threatened to kill his parents. The father managed to escape from the house, but the mother was trapped in the bedroom. Watson, Gorr and Carbone rescued the mother through a bedroom window while Mahon and Lamarre evacuated the surrounding
houses. Officers Mark DiBattista and Steven Cifone were given meritorious service awards for saving a man’s life. When they arrived on the scene, the victim was lying on the floor and barely breathing. They performed CPR and used an automated external defibrillator to revive him. “Every officer who takes CPR and AED training hopes he can save someone’s life,” Pocock said. “Too often, they get there late.” Officer Stephen Salerno received his third meritorious service award for his actions after a tanker filled with gasoline was hit by a
stolen SUV at the intersection of Route 322 and Old Turnpike Road. The tanker burst into flames and caused power outages to nearby homes and businesses. Officer David Schneider was also cited for meritorious service for what Pocock called “unbelievable police work,” in solving a series of dumpster fires 12 years ago. “It’s important to recog-
nize officers for all they do,” Pocock said in an interview following the ceremony, “because we in the department take the unusual as normal. “Awards are a storyboard of your career,” he continued. “Things happen to you. Not that you look for them. Things happen naturally to officers who tend to be in the soup all the time.”
