Three members of the Burien Police Department received Police Service Awards at the City Council meeting Monday night (click image to see larger version):
Officer Scott Fitchett received a Commander’s Award in recognition of his commitment and hard work involving a complex case of domestic violence, drug trafficking, prostitution, and witness tampering. The investigation lasted nearly one year, resulted in jail time for two dangerous felons, and saved five girls from a life of human trafficking.
Officer Jason Houck received a Lifesaver Award in recognition of his response to an unconscious 10-month old baby. His quick action in recognizing the baby’s symptoms and need for CPR led to the baby breathing again and may have very well saved her life.
Officer Michael Glasgow received a Lifesaver Award in recognition of his quick action in attending to the female victim of a hit-and-run accident. He administered CPR to the woman until paramedics arrived. Her continuing recovery from life-threatening injuries would not be possible without Officer Glasgow’s efforts that evening.
