Sheriff’s Deputy awarded for Meritorious Service

Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott presented the Meritorious Service Medal to a sheriff’s deputy at the County Commissioners meeting yesterday.

Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Osgood was awarded the medal for his actions when he was the first to respond to a fire on December 26th. When Osgood arrived to the scene of the fire he was told by a neighbor that the resident was still inside.

Osgood risked his own safety and went in to the building and dragged the man outside. The man was pronounced dead at the scene from his injuries but Sheriff Scott said that Osgood’s actions were courageous and selfless.

Osgood has also received the Sheriff’s award for life saving service.
