Deputy Bryan Salinas Lauded by the Texas Medical Center for Heroism

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - While city and county police officers do an admirable job of protecting our communities, it is often necessary to utilize an off duty law enforcement company.

Off Duty Services, Inc. has been serving the needs of the private sector since 2002 with nationwide access to thousands of commissioned police officers that work for local, county or state law enforcement agencies.

Recently, one of the officers of Off Duty Services, Inc. in Houston was honored for his heroic actions. Bryan Salinas was assigned to a detail in the Texas Medical Center and was alerted that a man was dangling dangerously over the ledge of TMC Parking Garage 4. Fearing for the individual's and the public's safety, Salinas exited his vehicle and quickly grabbed hold of the man. His quick response prevented the individual from committing any harm either to himself or others in the Texas Medical Center.
