Two Gainesville Police Officers were awarded the Meritorious Service Award at the Gainesville City Council Meeting on January 7, 2020. Ofc. C. Trammell and Ofc. C. Champion courageously helped save the life of a 3-year-old suffering from a cardiac arrest in September of 2019. Their immediate actions of CPR and first aid resulted in regaining a pulse. The child has since fully recovered and even celebrated a 4th birthday.
