  • On January 29, 2020:  MPD units were dispatched to a domestic disturbance. As officers arrived, they learned the reporting parties were children who barricaded themselves in their bedroom due to fear of their father, who armed himself with a knife and began cutting his own neck. A Sergeant gathered a team, made contact with the mother and removed her from the front door of the apartment. The team learned the father was barricaded in the bathroom. Officers gathered resources and secured the father in the bathroom. While this was happening, other officers utilized their patrol vehicle and rescued the children from the second story bedroom window.Officers began communicating with the father through the bathroom door. As time went on, the father stopped responding to the officers. The officers utilized ICAT training, and tools such as the shield, and 40mm, to establish contingencies prior to opening the bathroom door and checking on his welfare. Once it was confirmed the father no longer posed a threat to the officers, the officers immediately began rendering medical aid. During this time another Sergeant and two officers took care of the city and other pending calls for service. At the conclusion of this event, MDOT members responded to the scene to provide resources and emotional support to the other family members.This was a great example of teamwork and all should be commended for their professionalism, demeanor, and performance during this incident.
