Kronforst

Captain Jeremy Kronforst was nominated by Chief Reimer and Lt. Schroeder for providing Christmas for a child whose family had missed the Shop With A Cop event and the Salvation Army Toy Giveaway. Cpt. Kronforst secured the funds, purchased the gifts, wrapped everything, and staged it to be picked up!


VanKauwenberg (2)Officer Travis VanKauwenberg was nominated by Chief Reimer and Lt. Erickson for his heroic efforts responding to a car fire. The sole occupant of the vehicle was lying unresponsive next to the door of the vehicle; Officer VanKauwenberg and another officer approached the burning vehicle and pulled the operator away. While doing so, the vehicle became fully engulfed in flames. Thanks to their quick, selfless, and decisive reactions, it's highly probable that the team saved the man's life.
