Police Officer Commended for Life-saving Actions While Off Duty

Police Officer Commended for Life-saving Actions While Off Duty
Officer Rebecca Roubieu proudly displays the Law Enforcement Commendation Award presented to her by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, Marquis de Lafayette Chapter, Georgia Society. Pictured with her are Henry County Police Chief Keith Nichols and John Michael Tomme, Past President of the Marquis de Lafayette Chapter Georgia Society of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.

Police Officers are never truly off-duty, and their round-the-clock commitment to serve and protect was certainly evident in one Henry County Police Officer earlier this year. 

On the evening of January 9, 2013, 28 year-old Officer Rebecca Roubieu was off duty and had been shopping with a friend at the Wal-Mart in Locust Grove.  Afterward, as she was pulling out onto Highway 42, she spotted a car accident involving an overturned vehicle.  She immediately pulled over to see if she could assist and, upon closer inspection, realized that there was someone still inside the overturned vehicle, which was on fire. 

Using a hammer borrowed from a bystander, she broke out the window of the vehicle, only to find that the victim’s seatbelt would not come unbuckled.  A second bystander helped her to cut the seatbelt with his knife, and together, they were able to extract the victim from the burning vehicle, preventing further serious injury to the victim.

As a result of Officer Roubieu’s exceptional performance, she was awarded the Law Enforcement Commendation Award from the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution during a special ceremony held at the Stockbridge North Precinct on Tuesday, March 26, 2013.

Henry County Police Chief Keith Nichols, who also happened upon the same accident and got out to assist, where he found Roubieu, in casual attire, already taking action, praised Roubieu and the entire department during the ceremony, saying “Law enforcement often becomes a lifestyle.  I’m sure you didn’t hesitate.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.  I’m proud of you.  I’m proud of all of you.”

Lt. Joe Tammaro also praised Officer Roubieu for her selfless action, writing in the official Employee Commendation that will go into her employee file that, “this is just one of many examples of Officer Roubieu’s exceptional performance.”

Officer Rebecca Roubieu has been with the Henry County Police Department for approximately 1.5 years.
