Montgomery County Sheriff's Office

Deputy of the Year

On June 12th, 2018, Deputy Charles McGlown was dispatched to an ATV accident on private property on Seven Oaks Drive in the Pike Road Community. While enroute to the call, County E-911 advised that a Polaris Ranger ATV had overturned on the property and a juvenile was entrapped underneath the vehicle. Upon arrival, Dep McGlown became aware of the seriousness of the accident and using only his strength, was able to upright the ATV and free the juvenile and render medical support while Pike Road paramedics and Haynes Ambulance responded to provide life saving care for the juvenile. According to the specifications for the Polaris Ranger, the approximate dry weight of the ATV is 1636 pounds. Deputy McGlown’s quick thinking and actions during this stressful event helped save the life of 10 year old Hayden Shinkle on that day. The actions of Deputy McGlown have brought great credit to himself and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and is hereby awarded Deputy of the Year for 2018.
