Sgt. Cody Wei­gle has been with the Mar­i­on Police Depart­ment since May of 2015. He has found mul­ti­ple ways to advance his career with MPD through the Emer­gency Response Team, and also as a K9 Han­dler, leader of Trau­ma Train­ing and CPR, and 2nd Shift Patrol Supervisor.

Sgt. Wei­gle was in his patrol vehi­cle near a house fire call in the 200 block of W. 13th St. on the night of Novem­ber 25th, 2020. He rushed to the scene, forced entry when he heard some­one was inside the home where he found an elder­ly res­i­dent. He guid­ed the res­i­dent and her two dogs out of the home with the assis­tance of neigh­bors while the fire grew larg­er from a wall between the garage and the house. No one was injured in the fire and all escaped unharmed just before the fire became more vio­lent and the Mar­i­on Fire Depart­ment arrived on the scene.

Sgt. Wei­gle said he was blessed to be in the right place at the right time. I was for­tu­nate to be near the loca­tion to catch it quick­ly and help get every­one out. I just did what any oth­er offi­cer would do in this scenario.”

Mar­i­on Police Chief Angela Haley stat­ed that the res­i­dent was unharmed due to Sgt. Weigle’s actions. This life-sav­ing instance is just one exam­ple of how MPD offi­cers can make a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­ni­ty in help­ing oth­ers dur­ing their worst moments.”
