Murfreesboro Police Officer Michael Rickard came to the aid of a woman in distress. During the recent ice storm, power was knocked off at a disabled woman's home. As the temperature fell, she called police for help. Officer Rickard arrived and saw that the mix of no electricity, plummeting temperatures, and a woman who was unable to get around--just was not safe. The woman could not walk, so he carried her to the police car and took her to her sister's home. Officer Rickard was a life saver, and someone whom a Murfreesboro resident will always be thankful!
