Four officers were honored at the Lacy Lakeview City Council meeting Tuesday night with lifesaving medals and certificates of appreciation.

In August, Officer Lander who was assisted by TSTC PD Officer Marcus Woods and Sergeant Roman Proctor responded to a call on the I-35 overpass and saved the life of a suicidal woman attempting to jump from the bridge.
