A police officer was honored with a lifesaving award for responding to an emergency call and reviving an unresponsive person by performing CPR in Lincolnshire.
The Lincolnshire Police Department recognized Officer Robert Skrobot in recognition of his “exceptional efforts” in administering lifesaving CPR.
Lincolnshire Deputy Police Chief Kim Covelli said Skrobot exemplified dedication and professionalism when he responded to an emergency assist fire department call on May 3.
Skrobot arrived on the scene at a residence in Trafalgar Square and discovered an unresponsive individual.
He immediately initiated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), which played a vital role in reviving the person, Covelli said.
Covelli said that Skrobot’s ability in performing CPR under “intense pressure” was crucial in stabilizing the person’s condition and saving their life.
“His commitment to the preservation of life is a testament to the core values and professionalism of the Lincolnshire Police Department,” she said.
Lincolnshire Police Chief Joseph Leonas expressed admiration for Skrobot’s actions.
“Officer Skrobot’s proficiency and dedication in administering life-saving CPR is a true reflection of the caliber of our officers. His actions embody the highest standards of service and compassion, and I am immensely proud to present him with this Life-Saving Award,” Leonas said.
Lincolnshire Police Department’s lifesaving award is a distinction reserved for those who “display exceptional bravery and resourcefulness in critical situations, showcasing the unwavering commitment of law enforcement officers to safeguarding the lives of others.”
Skrobot will be formally recognized by Lincolnshire Mayor Elizabeth Brandt and the village board on Monday.
