Sergeant David Clarke was awarded the Meritorious Service Award yesterday for his efforts on May 15, 2018. We think it is best to let Mrs. Trotter describe what happened. Below is the letter she sent in. “I didn’t know who to send this to but I wanted to say Thank you and acknowledge Sgt. David Clarke for going above and beyond. The Weld County Sheriff’s Office mission is “Providing Effective Public Safety Services with Honor and Integrity”. He exemplified that on Tuesday, May 15, 2018." "I was at lunch with some friends when a medical emergency struck. Sgt. Clarke was having lunch at Sushi 1 in Greeley when I showed up to meet my friends. I noticed him when I arrived and wanted to thank him for his service but didn’t want to interrupt his lunch. Unfortunately, I did more than interrupt his lunch. I started to feel like I was going to pass out and ended up having my very first seizure. He was wonderful!! I remembered coming back to being coherent and he was right at my side. He was very caring and calm. He was understanding and was genuinely worried about my well-being. My friends I was with said he took command at the scene. He kept everyone calm, all while making sure I was taken care of too." "I was taken away in an ambulance and have sent a Thank You card to him but I wanted to let the powers that be know what an outstanding job he did and what a truly wonderful person he is. You are very fortunate to have someone of Sgt. Clarke’s character representing the Weld County Sheriff’s office. I am very fortunate he was there for me in my time of need. God bless and prayers to every law enforcement officer, especially Sgt. Clarke."

Deputy Brandon Ong was awarded a Life Saving Award today for his efforts on November 11, 2017. At approximately 1:00 a.m., WCSO deputies responded to an assault in progress call. When deputies arrived, they learned a female had multiple stab wounds. Deputy Ong observed severe bleeding from the female’s arm and observed that the female was about to lose consciousness due to her blood loss. Deputy Ong removed his department issued tourniquet and applied it to the female’s arm to stop the bleeding. An ambulance arrived on scene and transported the female to the hospital. At the hospital, the female was immediately rushed into surgery. Medical personnel from the hospital advised that the application of the tourniquet had directly saved the female’s life. Deputy Ong set forth a distinguished example of “Providing effective public safety services with honor and integrity” by his actions on the early morning of November 11, 2017. It is apparent that the female would not have survived her injuries if it had not been for the immediate and selfless actions taken by Deputy Ong to control the situation and facilitate medical attention. Job well done!!!
