Officers receive achievement awards

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Chatham County Sheriff's Office rewarded their finest officers and civilans with quarterly achievement awards. Several deputies and reserve employees even got promotions.

Sheriff Al St. Lawrence also took this time to encourage others to help keep each other safe through Project Lifesaver, a way to provide rapid response using a tracking device in case of emergency.

"The more people we have trained the more people we can get out there and look for them. Its like the man that walked out into the marsh and was found two days later, we would have found him right away if he had wrist bands," said Sheriff Lawrence.
