Job Well Done Nominee

Detention Officer Joseph Samaha


On June 8, 2018, the communications center received a report of a man unconscious near a pool. The man was not breathing and,  according to reports, had been under water for approximately four minutes. Officer Samaha took the call. Keeping the caller on the phone, Officer Samaha simultaneously dispatched the appropriate responders, entered the call into the computer aided dispatch system, and notated the incident information. As units were responding, Officer Samaha continued to gather information from the caller and update the responding units. The information Officer Samaha passed on, allowed the arriving units to go straight to work providing care to the patient. Because of Officer Samaha’s attention to detail and timely response to the situation, first responders were able to revive the patient who made a full recovery. Joseph, this is truly, “a job well done”!
