Employee of the Month
Missouri State Highway Patrol
Timothy Murphy, Driver Examiner Supervisor within the Missouri State Highway Patrol, has been selected as the August, 2014 Employee of the Month for the Department of Public Safety. Timothy was selected for this award for his courageous actions that resulted in two lives being saved. Timothy was performing his routine duties as a driver examiner when he came upon a burning residence. Timothy immediately requested emergency assistance, ran to the residence and removed two occupants, one of which was elderly and unable to walk without assistance. Timothy's actions were taken without regard for his own safety, and went above and beyond what is normally expected.
