Out of the thousands of law enforcement officers statewide, two Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies were recently recognized for valor, heroism, professionalism and dedication by the Georgia Sheriff's Association.
According to a news release by the sheriff’s office, Lt. Scotty Spriggs and Cpl. Page Cash, both of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, were two of three individuals in the state to be recognized at the Georgia Sheriff's Association's annual awards banquet.
Spriggs was awarded the Deputy Sheriff of the Year Award of Valor for “demonstrating an act of distinct heroism and bravery in the line of duty.”
In February, Spriggs received a medal of honor for his actions in saving another deputy who had been shot during a domestic dispute.
Cash was awarded the Deputy of the Year Award for Professionalism for “her tireless dedication and commitment to the excellence of the citizens of Georgia and the Sheriff's Office.”
“The Georgia Sheriff's Association only gives three total awards at their annual banquet and FCSO received two of them,” the release stated. “We are so very proud of the accomplishments of Lt. Spriggs and Cpl. Cash. We are truly blessed to have them represent our outstanding agency.”
