Officer Chad Yates
Chattanooga (TN) Police Department
Washington, DC—The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has named Officer Chad Yates of the Chattanooga (TN) Police Department, as the recipient of its Officer of the Month Award for June 2019.
Officer Yates responded to a call about a man in a convenience store parking lot. When he arrived, he noticed a barefoot man using two pieces of cardboard to keep his feet from burning on the hot pavement. He asked the man’s shoe size, went to a nearby store and bought the man a pair of shoes. A person pumping gas nearby saw what happened and posted it on social media.
The Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the Memorial Fund’s Officer of the Month Program.
