I am pleased to acknowledge the selection of DEPUTY SHERIFF GEORGE TROSKY as Employee of the Month for October 2018. 

At approximately 1318 hours on September 12, 2018, Deputy Trosky and his partner were traveling in a marked Sheriff’s van when they observed a vehicle accident that had occurred on West Carson Street, near the West End Circle. As Deputies pulled their vehicle over, several bystanders informed them that a baby was involved in the crash, leaving them uncertain as to whether the child was breathing. Deputies immediately called for medics and exited their vehicle to assist. They encountered a female victim, later identified as the infant’s grandmother, who was frantically screaming for someone to help her baby. 

Deputy Trosky approached the passenger side of the vehicle where he encountered the child’s mother, who was cradling the baby in the car’s front seat. The mother instantly handed her child over to Deputy Trosky, who began to assess the infant. The baby, who was hemorrhaging from her mouth and nose, had a faint pulse and was slipping in and out of consciousness. Deputy Trosky wiped the blood away from the baby’s mouth and performed rescue breathing. Within two minutes, the baby opened her eyes and began to cry. As Deputy Trosky could see the baby was alert and able to breathe independently, he picked up the baby and comforted her until medics arrived and began ancillary treatment. 

Deputy Trosky is recognized for his critical efforts, which selflessly he took without hesitation or concern for his personal safety, reviving a fragile infant in desperate need of medical attention. Deputy Trosky will be granted one full day off work, as long as no overtime is incurred. Please join me in congratulating Deputy Trosky for his life-saving performance.
