The Bulletin notes.

Law enforcement officers are challenged daily in the performance of their duties; they face each challenge freely and unselfishly while answering the call to duty. In certain instances, their actions warrant special attention from their respective departments. The Bulletin also wants to recognize those situations that transcend the normal rigors of the law enforcement profession.

Sergeant Lewis Warner of the Port Dickinson, New York, Police Department responded to a structure fire. Upon arrival, he immediately radioed that a large two-story commercial and residential building was fully engulfed in flames and that people were trapped in the numerous second-story apartments. Sergeant Warner quickly entered the front door and blindly made his way through the heavy smoke up the stairs and into the second-floor hallway, where he heard the sounds of someone struggling. As he could only hear the distressed resident, Sergeant Warner reached out, took hold of the disoriented man, and escorted him out of the extreme heat and darkness to safety outside. Sergeant Warner demonstrated selflessness and bravery while saving this man's life.

Early one morning, Officer Ross Snyder of the Orem, Utah, Department of Public Safety was the first responder to a house fire. Upon arrival, he was notified of a man inside and heard the victim cry for help and advise that he could not walk. Officer Snyder immediately entered the burning house and crawled beneath the dense smoke. He began communicating with the man and using a flashlight as a beacon. The victim advised that he saw the light and that he was in the kitchen. Officer Snyder located the vinyl flooring but had to search the room for the now-unconscious man. After finding him, he carried him outside to safety. The victim was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital the next day. The brave actions of Officer Snyder saved this man's life.

Corporal Camp was advised that she had left her house and entered the woods while carrying a large amount of prescription medicine that she planned to use to kill herself. He and the victim's father searched the woods until they found the unconscious girl. Corporal Camp lifted the victim and carried her a long distance until he was able to transport her to the hospital. This officer displayed the utmost professionalism during this incident.
