BRIEF: Paralyzed Portland officer to be honored for 20 years of service
Dec 29, 2012 (The Oregonian - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
The Portland Police officer who was paralyzed from the waist down after a telephone-pole sized tree fell on him during November training on an ATV will be honored Sunday for his 20 years of service as an officer.
A brief ceremony will be held at Legacy Emanuel Hospital, where Officer Paul Meyer is recovering. He was hospitalized on Nov. 19 after the 30-foot tall tree fell on him while he was riding an ATV during police training on Hayden Island. Doctors don't think that Meyer will be able to use his legs again.
Portland Police Chief Mike Reese will present Myer with his 20 Year Service Pin.
An account has been established at Advantis Credit Union to help Meyer's family during his recovery. Contributions can be made in person or mailed to any Advantis Credit Union branch to the "Officer Paul Meyer Fund."
Those wanting to send cards to his family can mail them to:
Portland Police Bureau SERT
Attn: Officer Meyer & Family
449 Northeast Emerson Street
Portland, Oregon 97211
