Three Chatham County Sheriff's Office deputies were honored for going above and beyond the call of duty in helping a home invasion victim earlier this month.

Sergeant Jason Livie, Lieutenant John Stephens and Deputy Timothy Capps were all given Letters of Commendation by Sheriff John Wilcher after they helped repair an elderly veteran's front door after a burglar kicked it in to rob his house.

They say being recognized is nice, but this wasn't the reason they went and helped out.

"It makes you feel good when you can help someone, especially someone who is a 41-year veteran of our military, who has served his time for our community,” said Lt. Stephens.

"It’s more rewarding than anything the sheriff can give you, helping someone who couldn't do it themselves,” said Deputy Capps.

These three deputies say they couldn't have done it without the support of their entire unit, and Savannah-Chatham Metro Detective Nicholas Melke, who called them about the man's busted frame.
