On March 22, the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce awarded Town of Vienna Police Officer Pat Shaw with a Certificate of Valor for his quick actions in caring for a severely injured person. The injured person was reported missing from his home and was located in a town park suffering from severe bleeding from his head. MPO Shaw immediately started to administer life-saving measures to stabilize the patient until an ambulance arrived on the scene. The injured person was transported to an area hospital and made a full recovery.
The Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce Annual Valor Awards Ceremony recognizes members of the Fairfax County Police Department, Fairfax County Sheriff's Department, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, Herndon Police Department and the Town of Vienna Police Department for their selfless sacrifice to protect the lives of others.
