Trooper Ruben Correa
Utah State Highway Patrol
Washington, DC—The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has named Trooper Ruben Correa of the Utah State Highway Patrol, as the recipient of its Officer of the Month Award for November 2019.
Trooper Correa found a car stopped on the railroad tracks as a train was approaching. The driver was unconscious after suffering a medical issue. He lifted the driver out and the two went tumbling down a slope just a second before the train crashed into the stopped car, missing both Trooper Correa and the driver.
The Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the Memorial Fund’s Officer of the Month Program.
