SAN ANGELO, Texas — The San Angelo Police Department has awarded several officers for their actions in the 2022 year.
Officers were encouraged to nominate each other and submit their nomination to the officer’s chain of command for review. The nominations then went to the "Meritorious Review Board", who then send their recommendations to the Chief of Police for approval.
The following officers were awarded:
- Officer Pedro Rodriguez and Officer Jacob Anderson were awarded lifesaving awards for their heroic actions in evacuating two apartments during a nighttime structure fire at a large San Angelo Apartment Complex.
- Officer Phillip Jensen was awarded the lifesaving award for his actions during a citizen in distress call. Officer Jensen arrived on scene and started CPR until the arrival of the Fire Department thus saving the citizens life.
- Officer Steven Martinez and Officer Zach Villarreal were each awarded a lifesaving award for their actions when they were dispatched to a citizen in distress. Their communication skills and quick action prevented a citizen from harming themselves during a mental health crisis.
