Sergeant Paul Arnold

Sergeant Paul Arnold is a 26-year Franklin Police veteran. July of 2016 was a life-altering month for Sergeant Arnold, after getting the news that he has cancer. This, however, was not the first time Sergeant Arnold received this dreaded diagnosis – it was his third, and this time the cancer was more serious and aggressive than before. While discussing treatment options, which have included brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, Sergeant Arnold’s single demand of the doctors who are working to save his life is that none of the treatment he undergoes affects his ability to continue his work at the Franklin Police Department.

“Sergeant Arnold will be the first Franklin Police Officer to ever receive this national award,” said Franklin Police Chief Deborah Faulkner. “His resolve and dedication to the Franklin Police Department and the people that we serve, in the midst of battling a life-threatening illness, is a testament to his courage and strong will to serve.  Sergeant Arnold epitomizes the criteria for the incredibly prestigious honor of receiving the Theodor Roosevelt® Police Award.”
