Courtney Knox and Lieutenant Steve Neal

Vancouver police honors citizen

Courtney Knox was nominated for a citizen commendation by the Vancouver Police East Precinct patrol squad, in a ceremony that took place on July 21, for his role in assisting police in the apprehension of a burglary suspect.

On April 8, 2009, the Vancouver Police Department were dispatched to a burglary in progress. The victim was in her residence when an intruder attempted to gain entry into her home by prying open the front door. Knox noticed the subject running from the residence, and at the same time, the homeowner ran out into the street, pointing towards the subject and stating that he had just robbed her.

Not knowing whether the subject was armed, Knox followed the subject; when the subject ran into a back yard and tried to scale a fence in an effort to escape, Knox grabbed him and pulled him back into the yard, placed the subject’s arms behind him and escorted him to the front yard where he held the subject until police arrived. The subject was arrested for the crime of attempted burglary. This individual has a long criminal history, and without the assistance of Knox he might have escaped justice.

Knox was also presented a letter, certificate of thanks and a plaque by Lieutenant Steve Neal in a ceremony held at the Vancouver Police East Precinct. Coincidentally, July 21 was also Knox’s birthday.
