On May 22 the NBPD honored rookie Officer Tyler White with its prestigious Life Saving Award for acting selflessly and with great courage to save the life of another.
Early on the morning of May 1, Officer White responded to a single motor vehicle accident on Turner St. A vehicle struck a tree and was fully engulfed in flames and covered in heavy smoke. Without hesitation and regard for his own safety, Officer White ran to the burning car and after several attempts was able to remove the driver, who suffered serious lower body injuries from being trapped under the dashboard.
