Medal of Valor

Several Orange County sheriff’s deputies were honored Friday with awards for their courage in 2017, including some who helped victims and were wounded during the deadly Las Vegas shooting in October.

The Medal of Valor ceremony was held at the Hotel Irvine where 27 deputies were honored, 14 of whom got the Medal for Lifesaving and six who received the Medal of Merit.

Once sheriff’s Deputy Lisa Dolan learned that there was a child inside the wrecked car she saw before her on Interstate 5 near the Grapevine, things changed.
