Way to go, Lt. Paul Barbour!!

As a grown woman who can’t sleep soundly without a 100 pound Lab at her bedside, I know how these girls feel!

The world can be a scary place, especially for a small child.

11-year-old Aubrey Craig said, “There are so many bad things out there and you never know what can happen to you.”

Aubrey and her nine-year old sibling, Ava, have been having trouble sleeping lately. The nightmares that have caused many restless nights in the Craig household.

Mom, Kaycie said, “They’re just scared about life in general.”

The Craigs’ have tried to ease their children’s fears, including a nightly safety check of their Edmond home.

Mrs Craig told us, “We started a process where we would get her up before bedtime and go door to door and window to window to show she’s safe and everything is locked and we live in a safe town and community.”

But more times than not, little Ava would end up on her parent’s bedroom floor, in tears.

Lt. Paul Barbour is a 29-year veteran of the Edmond Police Department, but he’s also a parent.

Police Officer of the Year’s Heroics Caught on Dashcam

A Pennsylvania State Trooper has received one of the highest awards in law enforcement for the actions he took to stop a man who launched a deadly rampage last December, and ABC News has exclusively obtained the unedited footage from the dash-cam that was installed in the trooper’s police cruiser.

It’s a rare glimpse into the moments when police engage an active shooter, and put their own lives on the line to potentially save others.

On the morning of Dec. 21, 2012, an unemployed, former trucker allegedly walked into a church in Frankstown Township, Pa., and opened fire on a woman decorating the building’s walls for a children’s Christmas party.

Scott Urkov is a police officer for the Coolidge Police Department. The department told him not to comment to media inquiries, but immediately after he received the no-uniform request, he posted on Facebook.
