Two Lebanon Police Officers Awarded for Lifesaving

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.
