OFFICIAL COMMENDATION

On Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 2124 hours, Officer Bryan Pullar, Officer Scott Stewart and Officer Matthew Smith were dispatched to Siren Records, located at 25 E. State Street, Doylestown Borough, for what was initially thought to be a 50-year old male having a seizure.  While en route, the officers were informed the victim was in cardiac arrest and that a nurse on scene started CPR.

When Officer Pullar, Officer Stewart and Officer Smith arrived on the scene, Officer Pullar immediately assisted with CPR with Officer Smith, while Officer Stewart applied an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to the victim, who was still without a pulse.  Central Bucks Ambulance paramedics subsequently arrived and performed pre-hospital care to the victim, whom, prior to transport to Doylestown Hospital, regained a pulse and survived this medial emergency.

According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death among adults over the age of 40.  Sudden cardiac arrest is survivable if appropriate and immediate measures are provided including CPR and the use of an AED within 3-5 minutes of collapse..  The Officers' actions had a direct impact on the outcome of this incident.

As a result of Officer Pullar, Stewart and Smith's professional expertise, cooperation and collaboration of everyone on scene, this person arrived at the hospital alive. 

The actions of all reflect in a positive manner on the Central Bucks Regional Police Department, the Central Bucks Ambulance Squad, and the individuals themselves.

E-Z PASS SCAM


There is a new scam making its way across the internet, and this time it involves EZ-Pass and the scanning procedure that it does when you drive through tolls.

How the Scam Works:  There are three things to look out for in the new scam email referring to the pass.  First, E-Z Pass customers get an email from 'look alike' E-Z Pass accounts.  Then, the email tells customers that they have unpaid toll fees.  Also, the email scammer asks customers to click on a fraudulent link to pay their bill.  All of these are signs of the E-Z Pass scam.  Usually, the scammer is looking to get your passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information from you. 

Here are some ways you can prevent yourself from becoming a victim:  First thing to remember is that emails like that are not legitimate.  They are coming from a scammer looking to use your personal, sensitive information for his/her own use.  Make sure to delete the message right away when you first receive it.  Do NOT click on the link either; it will take you to a fraudulent website that will attempt to retrieve your personal information.  The EZ-Pass Corporation released a statement saying it sends out notices through the USPS instead of through email.  By following these simple steps, you can prevent yourself from becoming a victim of these scams.
