Clinton law enforcement honored

CLINTON — Members of the Clinton Police Department and Clinton County Sheriff's Office commemorated National Police Week with an awards ceremony and a memorial ceremony to honor those who protect the community.

Before the Clinton City Council meeting Tuesday, two Clinton residents were given the Citizen's Award for their life-saving actions.

Thomas T.J. Jens Naughton was honored for alerting a neighbor that her home was on fire and helping her out of her home on April 12, 2012.

Naughton was first to see the fire after investigating crackling noises behind his home on 13th Avenue North. Naughton observed the home at 509 14th Ave. North on fire with flames extending from the side of the house up past the eves and roof.

Naughton ran to the front of 509 14th Ave. North, beat on the front door, and alerted the 63-year-old resident of the fire. The resident stated she was reading in her bedroom and unaware of the fire.

The location of the fire in proximity to the bedroom would soon block the escape route with smoke and fire, preventing her from exiting the burning structure.

The home was destroyed by the fire. Clinton police credit Naughton's rapid response to alert his neighbor and get her out of the burning home as a valuable service to the department.

James Willis Stevens was also honored with the Citizen's award for playing an intregal role in saving a woman who was in the Mississippi River.

Clinton County Communications dispatched Clinton Police Department officers to the north bridge April 24, 2012, in response to a suicidal subject who threatened to jump off the bridge.

Upon arrival, officers heard a female voice calling for help from the Mississippi River. While police officers and fire department personnel attempted to locate the woman in the water, Stevens, who was camping in the area of the river, heard her calls for help.
