From the Sheriff’s Office:
During the annual FOP Winter Dinner this past weekend, Sheriff Mendham presented two Deputies with 'Deputy of the Year" honors. This award is presented to for outstanding service and deeds to their office, community and profession.
This year’s recipients are Deputy Christopher Freriks and Deputy David Cook.
Deputy Freriks conducts himself with the highest level of professionalism whether on traffic stop or handling complaints. Deputy Freriks has proven himself as a leader, and someone dedicated to protecting the public. His service and dedication has shown with removing more than 50 drunk drivers off the roadways in 2017. Deputy Freriks is an FTO, Range Officer, and recently assigned to the Traffic Division.
Deputy Cook is assigned to the Corrections Division. No matter whether on duty or off duty, Deputy Cook carries himself with the same demeanor, always treats people with respect and portrays outstanding integrity. Deputy Cook is an assistant team leader of the Corrections Emergency Response Team, Taser instructor and most recently added to the county wide Honor Guard detail.
Both of these individuals represent the Sheriff's Office in a noble fashion and serve the profession with pride and honor.
Congrats to you both!
