Life-Saving & Leadership Recognitions


Share post:

Bourbonnais, IL — Some may consider Bourbonnais a ‘sleepy’ village. This can be attributed to the ongoing efforts of the Bourbonnais Police Department who work tirelessly to enforce the mission ‘to serve and protect all persons and property within the jurisdiction of the Village of Bourbonnais’.

In recent months, two officers administered life-saving techniques on unresponsive individuals and another completed a highly-accredited law enforcement educational milestone. All three will be recognized at the Village of Bourbonnais Board Meeting Monday, July 15, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. within the Municipal Center at 700 Main Street NW.

Patrolman Davis Domagalski, a two-year law enforcement officer and recent graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, will be commended for performing his fourth life-saving when he administered emergency treatment to an unresponsive individual on February 20, 2019.

Detective Andy Cox, an 18-year law enforcement veteran and who also serves as a paramedic on the Multi-Agency Emergency Response Team, will be commended for putting his medical training to use when he responded to the scene of an unresponsive individual on June 20, 2019. Detective Cox administered emergency treatment and performed CPR regaining a pulse on the patient, until the Bourbonnais Fire Protection District arrived and assumed control of the scene. Sergeant Brent Barrie, a 21-year law enforcement veteran, recently completed Northwestern University’s School of Police Staff & Command for law enforcement executives on May 10, 2019. Sergeant Barrie completed the intense 400-hour accreditation program with a straight A academic average.

“To say that I am extremely proud of all of these individuals would be an understatement,” stated Chief James Phelps. “We are fortunate to have a force who continually strive to go above and beyond without hesitation. The end result is saved lives, a safer community and a highly-trained and educated team.”
