Mansfield Police Chief Wayne Robb and Mayor Buddy Black presented Officer Sean White a Naloxone Life Saving Award on Monday, February 3.

The award was presented on behalf of the Criminal Justice Institute. White administered the life saving nasal spray, Narcan, to an unconscious male at a Mansfield residence. “I began giving him hard sternum rubs. He wouldn’t wake up, but was still breathing. …I administered the Narcan, and about 15-20 seconds later, he sat straight up in the car, was disoriented and didn’t know where he was.” The man was transported to a local hospital, where he recovered.

“He saved this individual’s life,” stated Robb, as he recognized White for his outstanding performance.

White received both a plaque and the life saving uniform pin. He is the only officer within the department to have received the honor.

“You didn’t have to do this, it’s not why I do it,” White humbly responded. All the more reason to recognize his quick and heroic act.
