On December 14, 2018, Tim and Amy were returning to SCCC from an emergency medical out count / hospital admission to Jefferson City.  Approximately 20 miles north of the institution they came across the scene of a head-on collision that had just occurred. Tim assisted in directing and controlling traffic in order to prevent any further accidents, while  Amy  provided medical aid to the injured party who was involved in the accident. Both officers remained on scene until police and emergency crews arrived and were in control of the situation. Despite having already been on duty for 17 hours, these two officers never hesitated in their decision to render aid and assistance to their fellow citizens in their time of need. Their actions exemplify the high degree of dedication to the welfare of the citizens of Missouri that members of the general public so rarely hear about.
