I Am An Amputee Police Officer

Amputee

Mike Lowery

I am grateful that I am still able to work as a police officer

Five years ago, I had my right foot amputated as a result of a motorcycle accident from a teenager who was texting and driving. After spending two weeks in the hospital and enduring ten surgeries, I decided to flip a coin and amputate my right foot. 

After six months of rehab, I returned to my job as an active duty police officer. I've been able to serve my community as a police officer even with my prosthetic leg. This disability deos not prevent me from performing my duties on the street. I've embraced the challenge and difficulties of working with a prosthetic leg and hope to inspire others to become law enforcement officers. No disability can hold you back. I am forever grateful that I was able to keep working in law enforcement and serve the community.
