On Jan. 21, Charleston County (S.C.) Sheriff's Deputy Jeffrey DeGrow responded to a burglary call and was shot six times, including one in his right eye. DeGrow kept his calm while radioing in his position and a suspect description even as he was gravely wounded. The NLEOMF named DeGrow its Officer of the Month for May.
