Pope County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Mike Brown was presented the department‘s Life Saving Award by Sheriff Shane Jones at Thursday night’s Pope County Quorum Court meeting.

On August 10, 2020, Sgt. Brown responded to a motor vehicle accident that occurred near SR 124 and Center Valley Road involving a car and a motorcycle. Upon his arrival, Sgt. Brown located the operator of the motorcycle who had sustained serious injuries to his upper leg with major bleeding. Recognizing the life threatening injuries, Sgt. Brown quickly applied a tourniquet to the victim’s leg until medical personnel arrived, which undoubtedly resulted in the preservation of life. Congratulations Sgt. Brown job well done!
