Chief's Commendation

During a recent awards ceremony, Key West Police Chief Donie Lee recognized Sgt. Donny Barrios and Officers Anna Anglin and Igor Kasyanenko with a Chief’s Commendation for their outstanding effort that stopped a suicide attempt.

In April, the three responded to the call from a parent whose suicidal child was threatening to jump from the roof of a shopping plaza. Upon initial contact, the juvenile refused to come off the roof. Officer Anglin continued to distract the subject while Officer Kasyanenko and Sgt. Barrios used a ladder to climb up to the roof, undetected by the desperate subject. They were able to take him into protective custody and avert tragedy.

“In recognition of this exemplary dedication, professionalism and teamwork,” said Chief Lee, “I present Sgt. Donny Barrios and Officers Anna Anglin Igor Kasyanenko with this Chief’s Commendation.”
