Our industry spends a lot of time talking about the bad things that happen to, or are caused, by agents. I wanted to share with the group an example of a Protector doing the right thing, and being recognized for it.
Earlier today, Jeremiah Walker, a graduate of the ICON Training course received a Citizens Award of Valor for risking bodily harm to take down a knife wielding assailant while working. Presented by the Chief of Police of the City of Minneapolis, Jeremiah’s actions put the safety of others before himself in a life or death situation. I wanted to offer my recognition, and state that he is among the ranks of those that were faced with that critical decision, and made the right decison that brought him and the people around him home.
