Care… Listen and Act are three words members of the Royal Cayman Islands police service (RCIPS) say they live by and a few officers will now have something to show for their valor.
Police Constables Winston Wolliston and Brandaugh Phillips are among five officers who received the citation for Bravery and Professionalism.
The R.C.I.P.S said the men showed great instincts in responding to CPR measures in the shooting incident of Justin Manderson while others were awarded for efforts in resuscitating an elderly Bodden Town woman.
Constable Winston Wolliston said he remembers the night he had to save the woman from suffocating.
“Her eldest son was trying to do CPR and the first thing he said to me was officer I don’t think I’m doing this thing correctly and immediately I jumped in and I remember the trainer at the time telling us to execute, execute,” Mr. Wolliston said.
Two other officers were recognised after it’s believed their actions saved the life of a man who received a life-threatening slash to his throat last year.
