Androscoggin Deputy Recognized for Bravery
On December 21, 2012, a woman called to report a domestic situation had occurred at her home in Minot where she and her two children had fled the home and her husband loading an AK-47 assault rifle. Sgt. Tilsley arrived on scene and started to coordinate the response. He learned that the residence sat about 750 feet off the road and had surveillance cameras and a large open lawn surrounding it. As Sgt. Tilsley was gathering information and assigning units, he began hearing automatic gunfire coming from the house. Sgt. Tilsley assigned Tr. Dan Hanson, Tr. Ronald Turnick, Tr. Joseph Bureau and Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Sampson to establish a perimeter around the residence, as gunfire rained on the scene as bullets passed over their heads, struck nearby trees and the ground in front of them. Through it all, they maintained their positions and relayed vital information back to the command post and the tactical team. For his efforts that day, Sgt. Kyle Tilsley is awarded the Special Award of Commendation.
And for courage under fire, Tr. Daniel Hanson, Tr. Ronald Turnick, Tr. Joseph Bureau and Deputy Eric Sampson will receive the State Police Award for Bravery.
