On Wednesday morning, at approximately 11:00 a.m., a Camden County Sheriff's Office Community Resource Officer stationed in Stoutland was waved down by a resident off Brownsville Road whose truck had rolled over the top of him. 

According to the press release, Deputy Belanger was patrolling his area when he was waved down by a 62-year-old resident sitting by a stock gate. 

The man had been out in his pasture since approximately 8:30 a.m. after his truck had rolled over the top of him, according to the release. 

An ambulance was called and the victim was transported to the hospital for treatment. 

New Sheriff Tony Helms had promised to reinstate Community Resource Officers when he took office. They are not to be confused with School Resource Officers. The CRO's are specifically assigned to Climax Springs, Stoutland and Macks Creek, but do go into the schools in their areas, according to the release. 

"To provide better service, these Deputies will get to know the people in their communities," the release stated. "Without the Community Resource Officer rendering aid, this incident could have been tragic. The CRO's are out there to be of assistance. Get to know them."
