Update on Boynton Beach Police Officer injured last week

The officer struck by a car while chasing a shoplifter across Gateway Boulevard last week is identified as Greg Wertman. Officer Wertman was hired by the Boynton Beach Police Department in July 2018. He remains hospitalized in serious condition.
Here is a statement from his family: “We are so appreciative of the community for the outpouring of support for Greg.
His condition continues to improve daily, which we believe has a lot to do with the power of prayer.
We are eternally grateful to Greg’s brothers and sisters at the Boynton Beach Police Department, who have not left his side since he was hurt and have made sure we have everything we need so that we can focus on his recovery; and to the miracle workers at Delray Medical Center, who are giving Greg the best possible care.
We also extend our heartfelt thanks to the people who saw Greg get injured and immediately got out of their cars and went to help him. You are heroes to us, and we hope to one day thank you personally.
Finally, we send our gratitude to the Boynton Beach Fire Rescue crew who rendered aid to Greg at the scene and on the way to the hospital. Your efforts were lifesaving and nothing short of miraculous.
We ask that you pray for the safety of all law enforcement officers who leave their families and risk their lives to keep their communities safe.
We look forward to the day Greg can return to work with his brothers and sisters in blue. We know he does too.”
