Eyewitness News wants to congratulate two Henderson Police Officers who have been named Employee of the Month for July 2017.
Corporal Greg Durbin and Officer Jonas Schweikhard were given the recognition. Photos of the officers were not available.
On June 11, 2017, officers responded to the 800 block of Kleymeyer Street in reference to a disturbance involving a man with a gun. Upon arrival, Corporal Durbin heard the mother of the male subject screaming for him to come into the house. Corporal Durbin went into the house and observed a man and a woman trying to get a shotgun away from the man who was trying to kill himself. Corporal Durbin held onto the shotgun until Officer Schweikhard arrived. Officer Schweikhard was then able to help Corporal Durbin control the shotgun and to get the shotgun away from the man. The man was transported to Methodist Hospital for mental evaluation.
