Citizens from Dallas and Police Officers Honored for Bravery

Local News Arlington,

The Dallas Police Department recognized 13 officers and five citizens for their heroic, life-saving actions in a special ceremony.

“Officers need to see and hear their hard work being appreciated,” Police Chief David Brown told a packed room of officers and family members. “[These are] example after example of stories that never get told.”

The four officers who helped save the life of a 4-year-old girl shot during a drive-by shooting on Aug. 22 were recognized for their quick actions. Officers

Christina Mattox, Jesus Tovar and Branden Helms were awarded the Life Saving Award. Officer Juan Manuel Saldana Jr. was awarded a Certificate of Merit. Their supervisors said had they not made a tourniquet to stop the young child from bleeding, the child would not have survived.

Eight officers were recognized for lifting a vehicle off a motorcyclist pinned under a car after a horrific crash on July 9. Officers Jason Henrichs, Laura Beddow, William Mathis, Kevin Mathew, Boz Rojas, R.L. Rushing, Michael Sullivan and Senior Cpl. Michael Welch were awarded the Life Saving Awards.
