MNPD Officer Levio Simcox Presented with Life Saving Medal

Simcox was presented with an award and Life Saving Medal from the U.S. Indian Police Academy, a Department of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).

Life Saving Medals are awarded in appreciation for prompt and unselfish acts of rendering aid and assistance to another human being that results in saving a life. He will also be given a bar representing the award to wear on his uniform.

On Tuesday, April 14th, 2020, Officer Simcox responded to an address where a subject was bleeding profusely. Officer Simcox was the first officer on scene. We credit his knowledge and experience from a FLETC Basic Tactical Medical Instructor course held at the Meskwaki Settlement School in July, 2019 for his quick and calm actions.

We are proud of Officer Simcox’s immediate action in the situation and how he represented our agency. Thank you for your service.
