Officer is employee of the month
CLEARWATER – Clearwater Police Officer Adam Jacques has been chosen as October’s city employee of the month. He was honored at a recent Clearwater City Council meeting.

Jacques was shopping at Home Depot while off duty and came across an elderly man who seemed to be in distress. Jacques identified himself as a police officer and told a Home Depot worker to call 911. The man was taken to the hospital, suffering from heat stroke and a possible cardiac issue. Jacques responded to the hospital and contacted the patient, whom he learned was 94 years old and didn’t have any family. The officer gave him his business card and told the man to call him if he ever needed anything. The next day, Jacques called to check on him and found out he had been released from the hospital.
