The City of Lambertville Police Department received some well-deserved praise at this month’s city council meeting.
At the August 17 meeting, Mayor Andrew Nowick and police Lt. Robert Brown honored three Lambertville police officers with life-saving recognition awards for actions carried out in the line of duty.
The police officers honored were Patrolman Kevin Bereheiko, Parking Enforcement Officer Michael Vecchio and Sgt. Michael Gramlich.
“I’m very honored to recognize the police officers who acted quickly and saved the lives of two people,” Mayor Nowick said. “For me, one of the most important elements of being the mayor of Lambertville is to express gratitude for those people, employees or volunteers who make this community vibrant and welcoming.
Bereheiko and Vecchio received life saving recognition awards for an event that occurred on June 29. Gramlich received his for an event on March 28.
In both situations, the officers responded to calls of people in cardiac distress and the officers initiated CPR and other life-saving measures, which stabilized patients until the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance Rescue Squad was able to transport the patients to nearby hospitals.
The mayor praised the entire police department for their outstanding service in the riverside city.
“The Lambertville Police Department is an incredible organization of well trained officers who are known for their professionalism, friendliness, and commitment to the community,” Nowick said. “I couldn’t be prouder or more grateful for their service and dedication for their service and dedication.”
