Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth handed out several commendations yesterday to members of the department. The Bronze Star-the third highest honor that can be awarded to an officer-was given to three deputies-Michael Preston, Tyrone Johnson, Adam Barnard.

Deputies Chase Foster, David Kless, and Allison George as well as correctional officers Matthew Durston, James Walker and Melanie Puder all received the life saving award for their actions while on duty.

Beth praised those who were honored and all the officers who serve everyday.

Several others were honored at Monday’s ceremony and still more were promoted within the department.
