Story by Officer Natalie Hall, CPD

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Two Officers from the Clarksville Police Department were presented with Lifesaver Awards for their heroic actions in the line of duty.

Officer Heather Hill responded to a call at 757 Spees Drive, in reference to a child not breathing Aug. 8. 2013. Upon her arrival, she found a ten-year-old male on the couch that was not breathing and had no pulse.

Officer Hill started CPR on the child and continued CPR until she was relieved by First responders. A Lieutenant from EMS said Officer Hill’s actions made it possible for EMS to regain a pulse. The child was flown to Vanderbilt ER and given breathing treatments.

Officer Alex Koziol was the first Officer to arrive at the scene of an accident with injuries at Trenton Road/Northfield Drive Nov. 11, 2013.

After seeing an occupant who was not breathing being removed from a vehicle, he immediately started CPR until medics and first responders relieved him.
EMS personnel, with the assistance of a defibrillator, were able to regain a pulse. EMS personnel said if Officer Koziol had not started CPR when he did, the victim would not have had a chance of being resuscitated. Since the incident, the victim’s brother has expressed his thanks and appreciation for what Officer Koziol did.

Officers Hill and Koziol are a credit to their shift, the Clarksville Police Department, and the City of Clarksville. Great job Officers Hill and Koziol, for going above and beyond your line of duty!
