Top Cop

I just received an e-mail about a Swayzee, Indiana Deputy Chief Mike Jones. Mike is in the running for America’s Most Wanted All-Star. This is what is posted about him:

On December 29, 2007, Deputy Chief Mike Jones responded to a 911 call. Arriving first at the scene he was told that three small children were still in the house. Taking only a small extinguisher, he entered without hesitation where he found the fire was raging. Realizing the extinguisher was inadequate, he concentrated on finding the children. With heavy black smoke bellowing he entered three times before he was able to save the lives of the children, ages 1, 2 and 3. Thanks to his persistent attitude and his disregard for risk of personal injury, the children survived the ordeal. He was awarded the Indiana Governor's Heroism Award, the Congressional Commendation. In addition, he received the life saving award and certificate of Lifesaving medal. He also earned the Swayzee Fire Department Merit Award and lastly the Indiana Heroes Award presented by the Basketball team Indiana Pacers. His career in Law Enforcement began in 2002 and his extensive training included CPR Adult, Child and Infant and also First Aid/AED.

I’d beg you to vote for him here (daily) but my knees are hurting. So, maybe you can just imagine me kneeling and begging you to go vote for Mike.
