On April 9, 2016 The WBL wrote about Officer Brian Strockbine who saved three people and arrested a suspect for attempted murder all within a span of four days. His efforts have been recognized by an organization known as SafeWise!
SafeWise reviews and gives third party reports on home safety and security news. They have expanded their efforts now on reporting on local heroes. They are giving awards that will “honor the police officers, firemen, community officials, and everyday citizens that go above and beyond for the safety of their communities.”
SafeWise has chosen Evesham Officer Brian Strockbine as their first ever recipient of an award for being a hero in his efforts and work in his community.
Officer Strockbine’s work and especially the four day whirlwind of events from March 8, – March 12, 2016 that made him notable were certainly contributing factors in his receiving the award.
SafeWise contributor Laura Colvin wrote a wonderful article and did an extensive interview with Officer Strockbine titled “SafeWise Heroes: Officer Bryan Strockbine” where he said in part: “This whole entire thing has made my head spin,” said Strockbine, 37. “I’m honored to be recognized… I’ve gotten cards and letters from all over the country, but it’s almost like I don’t feel like I don’t deserve it. I know I did good things, but I (just) did my job.”
When Officer Strockbine was presented with his award his Chief of Police, Chief Chew said “Bryan has consistently been one of our better officers throughout his career; It was really nice to see somebody like him get acknowledged.”
