At the Lebanon police department, two officers were awarded Tuesday night for their efforts for saving lives. Officer Christopher Allen and Senior Officer Jonathan Tracy are both receiving a Meritorious Police Service Bar for Lifesaving, which is an award given to any officer who is distinguished by performing physical acts to save a person’s life.
Officer Allen is being awarded for his response to the Fireside Inn on December 7th to a medical call of an unconscious woman. He gave CPR to the woman, which revived her, and she was transported to the hospital.
Senior Officer Tracy and his K-9 named Briggs were involved in a recent story that we had here on YCN News, were a man crashed his car on I-89 and was found in the woods with hypothermia hours later. Senior Officer Tracy and K-9 Briggs were able to track the man to the other side of a creek, where he was rescued.
Both officers were honored at 7 PM at the City Council meeting and all members of the public were invited to attend.
