Today’s (June 6) #Honor post goes to the hero with the Minneapolis Park Police. It’s Sunday today let’s honor this hero today on a beautiful Sunday.
On June 4, 2021 the report came in as a drowning at a local pool at the North Commons Water Park. A young 12 year old boy climbed the fence and entered the water. Soon the boy began to struggle in the water and a 911 call was placed.
The officer from the Park Police arrived and without hesitation jumped in the pool and removed the boy. The officer began CPR until other responders arrived. The boy was later transported to the hospital and released later in the day.
This officer, been on a few months. This officer, in a city that is voting on measures, this officer- did not hesitate to help. That is a hero on this beautiful Sunday and every day.
We appreciate this officer and all who continue to serve, protect and save. Hennepin County Sheriff's Office

On May 29, 2021 Officer Hubbard responded to a call involving a 3 week old baby who was choking. When he arrived the baby was turning blue and was not breathing. Officer Hubbard began to perform safe back claps dislodging the anti-gas drops.
“When we I rolled up on this call, anytime I deal with something that involves a child, I think about how the parents would want me to treat the child as if it were mine”-Officer Hubbard.
Nice work Officer Hubbard. Your community is fortunate to have you work in the city and you are a true hero.

On June 8, 2021 Officer Meinhardt met the little resident she saved on April 18, 2021. It was the last call of her shift that night and the last call any first responder wants to hear broadcast.
The call was that a 2 year old boy had drowned and CPR had just began. When Officer Meinhardt arrived the mother of the young boy who was limp was just starting CPR. Officer Meinhardt took over CPR and as Phoenix FD arrived they continued life saving measures. The young boy is expected to make a full recovery.
“It was just amazing to see this outcome and know that they get to celebrate more birthdays with him, so I’m just very happy for them,”-Officer Meinhardt.
Nice work Officer Meinhardt, you are a hero.
