I wanted to email you to tell you the TCCC training FTO Porter, Officer George and I completed
with your team at the Cobb County Public Safety Police Academy came in handy yesterday.
We had a subject who was shot multiple times and then run over by the suspect vehicle. FTO
Porter and Officer George were two of the first officers to arrive and immediately began
applying TCCC principles in treating the victim. FTO Porter checked a tourniquet applied by
another officer and found it was applied correctly, and assessed the leg wounds and applied a
second tourniquet due to a severe lower leg wound which was still bleeding.
Officers worked together to assess the victim in full and located and treated all wounds. They
were able to stabilize him as best as possible until Fire/EMS arrived and took over. The victim
I have no doubt your course contributed to the these officers being able to treat the victim
I just wanted to thank you and your team once again,
