Life Saving Awards
Officers and EMT’s Louis Duran (center), a resident of Newark, and Danielle Russo (right), a resident of Belleville, were presented with Life Saving Awards by Sheriff Armando Fontoura (left) during Police Week ceremonies at Veterans Courthouse on May 17th. The officers came across an unconscious male visitor in the hallway to the courthouse who had stopped breathing and collapsed. Assessing the cause of the situation as a possible drug overdose, Duran and Russo utilized Narcan and oxygen to resuscitate the victim. Undersheriff Amir Jones (2nd from left) and Captain Jeffrey Chambers (2nd from right) were also on hand to comment the officers.
