Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police Officer Kris Elliott received a Letter of Commendation and was recognized by Chief James Hambrick for a life-saving action. On Tuesday, July 12, 2016 around 10:00 a.m., Elliott was summoned to Walmart, located at 300 Pleasant Grove Road, to assist an elderly man who was unresponsive in the grocery.

Elliott arrived on the scene within two minutes of dispatch, and he noticed a store employee attempting CPR on the patient. Once the employee saw Elliott, the employee stopped CPR. Elliott then took over immediately and resumed CPR on the man until medics arrived. Personnel from Wilson County Emergency Management Agency (WEMA) and Mt. Juliet Fire (FDMJ) arrived on the scene and relieved Elliott of his efforts to save the man’s life. Eventually, the man was revived by medics and transported to a hospital.

“Because of the quick response by Officer Elliott, and the use of training provided to our officers, the man’s life was saved,” stated Chief James Hambrick. “This is another example that Mt. Juliet’s police officers are here to serve, in whatever capacity, to ensure the ultimate well-being of our citizens and visitors.”
