Landrum recognizes Officer of the Year

LANDRUM—The Landrum Police Department held its annual awards banquet recently and gave the Officer of the Year Award to Sam Lewis. 

The awards banquet was held on Tuesday, June 29. 

Officer Lewis was given Officer of the Year because he exhibit exemplary behavior, efficiency and morale, according to his submitted recommendation for the award. 

Officer Lewis sets the example of how other officers should be willing to do serve the department wherever the department has needs,” said the recommendation. “Officer Lewis is always willing to go the extra mile without being asked or ordered to do so. Officer Lewis is always willing to pick up extra shifts and duty without question, despite having a family and young children. Officer Lewis is a good representation of how officers are to act on a professional level. Anytime Officer Lewis was called upon, and that was several times during this year, no excuse was made, he just showed up and completed the assignment without question and carries himself with a gentle humbleness.”
