THE

GEORGIA STAR

LHA EMPOLYEE HONORED FOR HELPING
LAGRANGE POLICE OFFICER
Carlos Whitfield was honored April 27th before the City
Council meeting by Mayor Jim Thornton, Public Safety
Chief Lou Dekmar and LaGrange Police Officer Brady Pike.
Thornton presented Whitfield with a proclamation in front
of the man’s family, friends, coworkers, and dozens of LPD
officers, detectives and investigators. They, along with city
council members, cheered and gave Whitfield a standing
ovation after the presentation.
Thornton and Dekmar praised Whitfield for his quick
thinking and unselfish act on April 2, when Whitfield
jumped in to help Pike, who was suddenly assaulted by a
suspect while responding to a call at the playground in the
Lucy Morgan Homes on Borton Street.
In the initial attack, Pike’s radio was stripped off his body.
While he tussled with the suspect, Pike yelled out to nearby
parents for help.
“When we went to the ground and I realized my mic had
fallen off, I was in the state of holding him down until
backup could get there,” said Pike. “I could hear them
coming. I had him held down pretty good. I didn’t want to

keep exchanging blows with him.”
Some people called 911. Others filmed the fight with their
cell phones. Whitfield, who was working on a water leak
behind a nearby building, immediately ran to Pike’s rescue.
The cell phone video showed Whitfield help Pike pin down
the suspect, later identified as David Noles, 52. The good
Samaritan held onto Noles as he continued to flail around
while Pike and a second LPD officer finally place the suspect
in handcuffs. ~LaGrange Daily News~

CHILD ABUSE AWARENESS MONTH
Have

you noticed the “Protect a
Child” Child Abuse Awareness
signs around the property? Were
you wondering what they were
for? April was first named Child
Abuse Prevention month in 1983 by
presidential proclamation. In 2014,
646,261 children in the U.S. were
reported victims of child abuse and/
or neglect. Of those children, 1,580
died (National Child Traumatic
Stress Network). Child abuse and

neglect aren’t as uncommon as you
may think. Even here in Troup
County, there are reports of children
who are the victims of child abuse
and neglect.
West Georgia Star and the LaGrange
Housing Authority have partnered
with Twin Cedars Darkness to Light:
Stewards of Children program to
bring awareness of child abuse and
child sexual abuse to the residents,
as well as the staff of the LaGrange

Housing Authority.
All staff
members are required to receive
Darkness to Light Trainings, and
the Darkness to Light trainings are
offered as a part of the new series of
Life Skills Classes offered to the LHA
residents. For more information on
