On 04/18/17, B shift had 2 separate vehicle collisions on Robert Edge Parkway at 31 simultaneously.  Sgt. Griffin responded to the incident location to assist officers on scene  Both vehicles involved  suffered severe damage, with airbag deployment and a total of 3 out of the 4 passengers were transported with injuries.  One of the drivers of the vehicles an 84 year old US Marine was the only uninjured occupant.  After the dust settled at the incident scene, Sgt. Griffin determined that the 84 year old male suffered from hearing loss and was unable to use a cellphone because he cant hear.  His wife, the only person with him while he was on vacation had been transported with injuries to North Strand Hospital.  Sgt. Griffin jumped into action to help this family from Raleigh, and loaded all their belongings into his patrol car, as they were just arriving in our area for vacation prior to the crash.  Sgt. Griffin then transported the driver to the hospital where he met with me.  While at the hospital, Sgt. Griffin realized that the gentlemen with him now had no vehicle, no family close and was unable to use a phone.  His wife was receiving care in the hospital and was unable to assist her husband with getting a rental car, or any means of transportation.  While in the lobby of the hospital, Sgt. Griffin assisted the family by calling the insurance company for the 84 y/o driver.  Sgt. Griffin was able to secure a rental car via enterprise from the drivers insurance company.  I am sure this would not have happened without his assistance, until the drivers wife was released from the hospital. Sgt. Griffin then escorted the driver to Enterprise and assisted him in getting his new rental car and transferring all their belongings over, prior to his wife being discharged.  This allowed them to continue on with their vacation without further delay.

I believe Sgt. Griffin demonstrated on this incident what a true police officer should be.  His actions positively affected not only those involved in the incident, but others who observed his actions while at the hospital.  Sgt. Griffin is a true example of a compassionate, knowledgeable police officer, and should be recognized for his actions.
