Shelby County Deputy Kevin Helms was chosen by the National Rifle Association as Officer of the Year for 2002

Shelby County Deputy Kevin Helms was chosen by the National Rifle Association as Officer of the Year for 2002. Helms, currently assigned to the sheriffs uniform patrol division, was chosen by the NRA for his bravery stemming from a traffic incident in January 2002 at Houston Levee and Walnut Grove roads. Helms had stopped to assist a motorist whose car was creating a traffic hazard. As he approached the drivers window, a man inside pulled a gun and shot Helms once in the chest. A bulletproof vest protected the officer from serious injury. He also escaped injury from a second bullet that struck the radio microphone clipped to his uniform. Helms has been with the sheriffs office since 1997. In addition to his current position in uniform patrol, he works in the fugitive squad, street crimes unit, community policing and court services. In his career, he has made more than 300 arrests.
