Photos: Officer helps turtle cross road in torrential downpour

Police One - Wed, 06/20/2018 - 14:24

GREENBELT, Md. — A Maryland officer was praised for helping a small turtle cross a road in soaking rain.

Earlier this month, Carolynn Hammett and her husband told WTTG that they spotted an officer in uniform standing in torrential downpour as she helped a small snapping turtle cross the road. Storms ravaged the area in early June, creating flooding conditions.

Despite the soaking rain, Hammett said the officer, identified as Greenbelt Master Police Officer Sharnise Hawkins-Grahams, still had a huge smile on her face as the turtle crossed the road.

"I couldn't believe that she was standing there guarding that turtle in all that rain," Hammett said. "Not many people would do that, regardless of their occupation. She was serving and protecting in every sense of the word."

According to The Dodo, Hawkins-Grahams was on her way home from a ceremony when she spotted the turtle. The officer called animal control for assistance since snapping turtles can be dangerous.

When animal control didn’t immediately respond, Hawkins-Grahams stood and protected the turtle. Hammet said she and her husband, who gave the officer an umbrella, hurried home to get two shovels to lift the turtle safely off the road.

"The officer thanked us and we thanked her and we all went on our way," Hammett said. "She was smiling a big broad smile the entire time and she never seemed to care that she was drenched completely through. She was delightful, inspirational, kind, all the things that you think a police officer should be."

The Greenbelt City Police Department praised Hawkins-Grahams, who was recently named Officer of the Year, for her actions and the Hammett couple for helping out.

Video shows shootout that injured LEO, killed suspect

Police One - Wed, 06/20/2018 - 12:01

By PoliceOne Staff

JACKSON, Mich. — Recently released dash cam footage shows a shootout that wounded a Michigan police officer and killed a suspect.

On April 1, Easter Sunday, Jackson officers responded to a domestic dispute, WLNS reports. Police said moments after police arrived, 34-year-old Christopher Hall walked out of his home and started shooting at officers.

Thirty-six shots were fired in less than 30 seconds, 21 coming from police and 15 from Hall, police said. One of the bullets struck Officer Thomas Tinklepaugh in the leg.

Tinklepaugh is seen on video crawling and taking cover behind a telephone poll where he continues to return fire. Hall was killed by six gunshots in the shootout.

Tinklepaugh was taken to a hospital and is recovering from his injury. He is expected to return to work.

Hall’s girlfriend was also shot and wounded in the incident. Witnesses said Hall used her body as cover from police gunfire.

Investigators said Hall was a bipolar schizophrenic and was off his medications. Hall’s girlfriend told authorities that Hall planned to have a shootout with police to avoid returning to jail.

The officers involved in the shooting were cleared last week after prosecutors found that Hall shot first, refused to drop his weapon and posed a clear threat to officers.
