We are honored to induct Taylor Webb of Georgia, into the Rush Limbaugh Military Hall of Patriots, 2022 class. For ten years Webb has demonstrated leadership and courage as a patrolman, detective, and SWAT Team member.
On April 5, 2019, Webb was involved in a sixteen-hour standoff with a suspect, where he and another officer were wounded in the line of duty. As Webb and another eight-year veteran of the force entered the home, the alleged gunman shot Webb in the chest and hip and the other officer in the hand. Both reported their injuries immediately but “neither retreated.”
Detective Webb let us know that the main job of law enforcement officers is to “work themselves out of a job,” meaning that the public has been made safe enough that their work is no longer required. He also feels that if everyone could “ride along” with a police officer they would gain a greater appreciation for the complexities of the work.
Webb continues to suffer from his injuries from the 2019 incident, and he and his wife work hard to support the family including their two young children.
