Sergeant Jacobsen, K9 Officer Job, Officer Schrek - Life Saving Award

Each year, the Life Saving Medal is awarded to any member of the department directly responsible for saving or significantly prolonging a human life.  The award is issued in the form of a medal that can be worn on class a dress uniform, a ribbon bar that can be worn on the everyday class b patrol uniform and a letter of authenticity from the Chief of Police. 

This year we are issuing three such awards:
