WYOMING, Mich.-- Six people who saved lives and made the community a better place were honored by the Wyoming Police Department this week.
The police department presented its Citizen Awards June 26.
“These awards are to acknowledge those who step forward – at great risk to themselves sometimes – to do the right thing to help their fellow citizens,” said Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody.
This year’s recipients included Luis Alberto Araujo and Luis Arturo Araujo, who stopped a person assaulting a neighborhood child last June; Juan Cisneros who recovered a woman’s purse from a thief last February; Gary Pykerman, who rescued a drunken man from a grass fire last July; and Barbara DeCan and Leonardo Guiliano, who created a neighborhood association for Oriole Park.
Award recipients are picked by a committee of five Wyoming Police Department employees. For more information, call (616) 530-7272.
