Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police Sergeant Scott Fulton, a 10-year department veteran, received a Letter of Commendation and was recognized by Mt. Juliet’s Board of Commissioners for a life-saving action. In September of 2016, Fulton responded to a neighborhood to help locate a 19-year-old female that was threatening to harm herself.
Fulton arrived on the scene and aided in locating a female with a gunshot wound to the chest. After finding the female, Fulton was able to use first aid skills he learned from his service in the United States Army and as a police officer. He ensured she was able to breathe and controlled blood loss until medics arrived. Thankfully, the female survived.
“Sgt. Fulton’s quick response and application of first aid definitely was a contributing factor to ensuring the individual survived,” stated Chief James Hambrick. “Sgt. Fulton is an example of a fine police officer, who dedicates a large portion of his life to serving our community. He is always there to answer the call to ensure our community remains safe.”
It is believed that Fulton’s quick response, actions, and appropriate administration of first aid, coupled with the care from Wilson County Emergency Management Agency and Mt. Juliet Fire Department medics, led to the female’s survival. Fulton was recognized by Chief Hambrick and the Mt. Juliet Board of Commissioners at this evening’s Board of Commission Meeting at City Hall. Fulton also received the Mt. Juliet City Employee of the Month.
