JPD Officer James Dooley was the first to arrive. Officer Dooley took immediate control of the situation by moving the female from a bed to the floor and then took over performing CPR. Capital City Fire and Rescue personnel arrived and began treating the female. The female was transported to the Bartlett Regional Hospital, and ultimately medivaced to Harborview Medical Center in Washington. CCFR medics said Officer Dooley’s swift actions played a large part in stabilizing the female so she could be transported to BRH for further care.

He successfully completed the Alaska Department of Public Safety Academy in Sitka, and is in the final stages of police field training. Officer Dooley is expected to be released from field training on 09/11/2013 and will start working as an independent patrol officer next week.
