The Auburn Police Department presented three individuals with department-sponsored awards at the most recent City Council Meeting. One police officer received the Police Commendation Award, while two residents were honored with the APD’s new Citizenship Award.From left: Councilman Mike Walter; Bob Burris; Anne Treesh; Officer Jeremy Heffelfinger and Mayor Norm Yoder
The award recipients were:
“Both Anne and Bob’s actions are a reflection of their character,” says APD Chief Martin McCoy. “They both saw opportunities to help and stepped up without hesitation. Their genuine concern for others and their community is an example to Auburn citizens of all ages.”
The same is true about Officer Heffelfinger. “He’s devoted his life to helping others,” says Chief McCoy. “That doesn’t change whether or not he’s on duty.”
Both citizens received a certificate and a department challenge coin as a gift of appreciation.
