Job Well Done Nominee

Officer Gordon Best

Officer Gordon Best responded to a call at one of the motels in the city. The caller reported there was an individual on the seventh floor of the motel who was threatening to harm himself. Officer Best entered the unit identified by the caller and found the individual on the balcony. Officer Best introduced himself and as he did the gentleman stood up, climbed on a chair, and started to jump. Officer Best was able to grab the man and pull him back onto the balcony. Gordon was able to establish a report with the individual and calm him; eventually convincing him to seek medical assistance. Officer Best’s quick  and selfless actions saved this individual’s life. Gordon, this is truly a, “Job well done.”
