Sergeant Jeff Turney
Glendale (AZ) Police Department
Washington, DC—The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has named Sergeant Jeff Turney of the Glendale (AZ) Police Department, as the recipient of its Officer of the Month Award for August 2019.
Sgt. Turney responded to a “check welfare” call on a 94-year old resident who was preparing to make a trip from Arizona to Florida. The call came from the man’s son who wanted police to talk his elderly father out of making the trip. When Sgt. Turney realized how important the trip was to the 94-year old, he volunteered to use his own time off to drive the man on his journey.
The Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the Memorial Fund’s Officer of the Month Program.
