Committee on House Administration Ranking Member Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) delivered a statement on the House Floor recognizing the bravery and heroic actions of the United States Capitol Police (USCP) following Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Read the transcript below.
In honor of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, I rise today to recognize the officers of the U.S. Capitol Police force for their heroic actions to save lives as part of their highly-trained and committed service to this Congressional community throughout 2019.
When they heard the radio call about an unresponsive individual in a car, two officers responded and ultimately saved the life of a man who had suffered a heart attack.
Officers administered Tactical Combat Casualty care to the victim of a shooting and helped get that person to a hospital.
Three officers saved the life of a man who shockingly had a heart attack during his visit to this Capitol building.
These are only a few occasions in an impressive list of heroic actions. We owe our gratitude to all of the officers of the United States Capitol Police Force for the hard work they do here.
Thank you all for going the extra mile not only to protect and defend us here in the Congressional community, but for all you do in all of our communities.
