On June 17, 2020, Missouri Senator Riddle presented two Senate Resolutions for the lifesaving actions taken by Deputy Eric Redman and former Deputy Ryan Parker, now a Troy Police Officer.
On April 3, 2020, Deputy Eric Redman and Officer Ryan Parker responded to a 911 call regarding a sixteen-year-old who accidentally cut herself. When deputies arrived, the teenager was bleeding profusely from the forearm. Both Deputy Redman and Officer Parker applied a tourniquet to slow the bleeding.
Responding paramedics determined the girls cut an artery and without the quick and effective treatment applied by both Redman and Parker, the girl would have most likely died.
Congratulations on a job well done you both are most deserving of this recognition.
