Injured school resource officer presented with check from fundraiser
The check represented the money raised during a special fundraiser at five Bossier Sonic locations on Feb. 19 and will include the portion of sales, as well as donations during that time – it’s a sizeable amount that will surely help the Golden family!
Dep. Golden serves as the school resource officer for T.L. Rodes Elementary School in Haughton. On January 24, he was struck by a vehicle on Highway 80 while he was directing school traffic that morning. He sustained several major injuries and underwent surgery on his broken legs, among other injuries. He was able to recently go home to heal and recover…which will be a lengthy process.
The 37-year-old deputy is a 10-year veteran of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office, with service from 2007 to 2012, and then again from 2013 to present. He became a school resource officer this school year.
Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington joined Dep. Golden and his wife, Jessica, for the check presentation.
