BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office honored the top deputies at its annual awards ceremony Tuesday.
Sheriff Sid Gautreaux hosted the event, which is now in its fifth year.
Among the many honorees was Deputy Ricky Bond, who was awarded the medal of valor.
“I'm driving down the road and just happened to see a car that got into an accident,” Bond said. “I jumped out of my unit and tried to help the guy out as much as I could. I wanted to take him out of the vehicle without being seriously hurt.”
Four deputies received lifesaving awards.
