There are some moments that can define your life forever and make you reassess what is important to you. And for PCSO David Monk this was the death of his 65-year-old dad.
Back in 1995 George Monk died of a cardiac arrest as bystanders watched on helplessly as no one knew basic life support which could have saved him. From this moment David was inspired to help others and devote his spare time to saving the lives of other people’s dads, mums and other loved ones.

Criminals are being brought to justice by West Midlands Police thanks to a crime-fighting ‘app’ that allows the public to view CCTV of wanted people while on the move.
The Facewatch application allows smartphone and tablet users to search for crime suspects thought to be operating in their area and to view their images; more than 100 people have now been arrested as a result of information provided by eagle-eyed members of the public.
The technology is also being used by businesses as an instant crime reporting tool which allows them to electronically provide police with CCTV pictures of suspects, statements and crime details to detectives within minutes. It's saving thousands of hours of police time and keeping cops on the street fighting crime.
