CORPORAL ROBIN GREEN & CORPORAL TODD GREEN
LAFAYETTE POLICE DEPARTMENT
In August, 2016, the Acadiana area experienced extremely heavy rains that caused widespread flooding. As a result, many officers were called in to perform evacuations of trapped residents. Corporal Todd Green and at that time, Corporal Robin Starring, did not wait for the call of duty. Using a personal boat, they began evacuating residents from flooded areas. They began their efforts early that day and stayed throughout the night rescuing those in need. They battled the rain and darkness until everyone in that area was safe from harm. They used personal resources and put themselves in harm’s way without a second thought. They continued their rescue efforts for almost 18 hours. Following a daunting weekend of evacuations, they then volunteered to cover posts at a local shelter for victims of the flood. All that time in a boat must have created quite a bond, as Corporal Robin Starring is now Corporal Robin Green.
