Deputies receive Commendations
I was very pleased to submit two of our deputies, Chief Deputy Jared Debrecht and Senior Deputy Scott Maxey’s names to The National Police Hall of Fame for General Commendation Award. Deputies Debrecht and Maxey were presented the awards by Judge Randall Head, Iron County Presiding Commissioner Jim Scaggs and Sheriff Roger Medley, for distinguishing themselves and bringing great credit to the sheriff’s office by rescuing a three year old child from brutal attack. The child had been physically assaulted along with an attempt to cause bodily harm. The deputies talked to the subject until they were able to position themselves so they could physically engage the individual and remove the child to obtain medical treatment.
