Three members of the Burien Police Department received Police Service Awards at the City Council meeting Monday night. Officer Scott Fitchett received a Commanderâ€™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 babyâ€™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 Glasgowâ€™s efforts that evening.]]>
Thank you all. We should probably tell you and your colleagues that more often than we do.
3 fine examples of our local police department. I am proud to be associated with them.
