Hendricks County Sheriff Dave Galloway recently recognized three deputies for their efforts while responding to suicidal subjects.
Corpl. Craig Hughes and Dep. Kyle Schaefer, after an extensive search, were able to locate a woman who was attempting suicide in her vehicle parked in a secluded area and were able to get her medical treatment immediately.
Dep. Brandon Adams responded to a domestic violence situation where a man had left the residence with a handgun threatening to harm himself. Adams talked the male into putting the handgun down and turning himself in.
All three deputies received commendations from Galloway.
“I am very proud of these deputies and their efforts to bring these situations to peaceful conclusions which ultimately saved lives,” Galloway said.
