Probation Officer Julie Hall Saves Life of Infant

Juvenile probation officer Julie Hall is being credited with saving the life of an infant during an unannounced home visit on July 11, 2016.  Hall is a member of Trial Court Local 229, based in Barnstable, MA.    

Hall heard the baby crying from outside the apartment when she arrived for a home visit, and no one responded when she rang the bell or knocked on the door.  Hall then realized that the air conditioner was not running.  She called 911 and officers were able to enter the home by pulling the air conditioning unit from the window.

“We are proud of the great work that our probation officers do, and Hall took swift action in a situation that could have ended much worse,” said Local 229 President Margaret Thompson. 

The child was taken to Cape Cod Hospital and later placed in foster care.
