A number of officers from the Porter County Sheriff's Office were honored today (Monday) for their efforts in saving lives. The American Red Cross presented a “Life Saving” award to Sgt. Jeremy Chavez, who saved the life of a four-week old baby girl who had stopped breathing by using CPR, on December 21, 2013. Sgt. Chavez says he is flattered and humbled to receive this distinction. Scott Gerding, Preparedness Health and Safety Services Delivery Manager with the Red Cross in Indiana, presented the award to Sgt. Chavez, who was one of only 118 recipients to receive the award across the nation for 2013.
