Award of Valor to Dr. Miles Newman
On June 1st, 2014 members of the Northwest Regional Police Department attended the Retirement gathering for an outstanding Community Volunteer Dr. Miles G. Newman.
Dr. Miles G. Newman D.O. has been the driving force for the Northwest Lancaster County Area Advanced Life Support organization since at least 1980. The 76 yoa, Dr. Newman affectionately known as “Doc” is most likely one of, if not the only physician in the nation who actively responds to many emergency incidents including vehicle accidents, shootings, and hemi attacks as well as many other tragic life threatening incidents when they happen! “Doc” has been commonly known to leave his medical office to respond to a crash to treat the injured, all as a volunteer!

Dr. Newman had also served for many years as a Lancaster County Deputy Coroner.
Dr. Newman has been volunteering his time developing many advanced life support response and treatment techniques in Lancaster County for almost 5 decades. Dr. Newman doesn’t only create these effective protocols, he continues to actively respond to the incidents and works right with the Medic’s on many of these tragic events in the field, saving Thousands, if not Tens of Thousands of lives over the years.

Dr. Newman is now retiring from his medical practice and the Northwest Regional Police Department felt this would be a great time to recognize this incredible community volunteer who has even treated police officers in the field who have been involved in Vehicle Accidents and other injuries over the years.

The Northwest Regional police Department presented the very first Department award for VALOR to Dr. Miles G. Newman on June 1st 2014.

The Award medallion and Certificate was presented by Chief of Police Mark E. Mayberry, Police Officers Association President Mike Shetter, Vice President Charles Tobias, Detective Frank Ember Jr. and Police Officer Harry Cleland.
