Los Angeles(LASD)-Sheriff Jim McDonnell along with Assistant Sheriff Todd Rogers hosted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) Life Saving Award Ceremony.

On Thursday, May 19, 2016, thirty-one department members were publicly recognized by Sheriff McDonnell for their courageous engagements. The Sheriff’s Lifesaving Award is presented to deputy sheriff’s, as well as reserve deputies, whose actions resulted in the saving or preservation of a human life, which would have been lost but for the brave intervention of deputy personnel.

In a special segment of the ceremony, Sheriff McDonnell awarded the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Star Scroll to personnel from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, and the United States Coast Guard, for their collaborative efforts with the LASD in saving the life of a scuba diver.
