Robeson Township Police Officer is recognized
Robeson Township's newest police officer, Officer Justin Schlottman was recently recognized by Reading Hospital, Tower Health for his outstanding efforts to "Stop the Bleed". Officer Schlottman had responded to a call for a woman who was bleeding severely from a dog bite wound. Several residents had come to the victim's aid prior to police arrival. Upon Officer Schlottman's arrival, he quickly evaluated the victim's injury prior to applying a tourniquet in an attempt to control the loss of blood. Officer Schlottman had to apply a second tourniquet to the victim in order to further control the bleeding. The patient was then treated at the scene by Tower Health EMS prior to being transported to the hospital.
We would like to thank Tower Health's EMS Outreach Coordinator for visiting the Robeson Township Police Department to present Officer Schlottman with the Certificate of Recognition. As part of the Stop the Bleed Program, the Robeson Township Police Department was provided 2 tourniquets to replace the ones utilized by Officer Schlottman. Good Job, Officer Schlottman!
