The State University of New York Police Chiefs Association recently honored three officers of University Police at SUNY Oswego for taking actions that saved lives.
In a ceremony at its fall conference Nov. 14 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., the association presented Life Saving Awards to officers Thomas Marrone, Kelly Thompson and Thomas Woodruff ’88.
Officer Marrone was recognized for saving the life of a man last May. While assisting the city of Oswego’s police on another matter, Marrone was alerted that a man was attempting to commit suicide by jumping off the Bridge Street bridge into the Oswego River. Marrone risked his own life pulling the man to safety as the man stood on the outside of the protective railing.
Officers Thompson and Woodruff were recognized for saving the life of a SUNY Oswego student last fall who had collapsed and was not breathing on the west side of campus.
