Deputy David Reiman
Williamson County Sheriff's Department

Deputy David Reiman has been with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office since June of 2009. This past year, he was instrumental in saving a life during the May flooding. He went above and beyond the call of duty by commandeering a canoe to attempt the rescue of a citizen who had been caught by the flood waters of the Harpeth River. The citizen was clinging to a tree due to the rising waters and rapid current. Deputy Reiman got into a canoe to attempt a rescue, only to have the strong current flip his canoe, spilling him into the Harpeth. He was able to grab onto a tree and had to await rescue himself. He attempted this rescue without hesitation and regard for his own safety. Deputy David Reiman is to be commended for his bravery.

David and his wife Emily have been married for five years , and have two children, Ethan & Aubrey.
