Sheriff's office honors deputies

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - It's a tough line of work without a lot of recognition, but several members from the Oneida county Sheriff's Office received awards Thursday for going above and beyond in 2013.

Several unique awards were given. Previously, it was believed Deputy Kurt Wyman was the first killed in the line of duty, until recent research showed a deputy was shot and killed while arrest bootleggers in 1921. He was awarded posthumously with a medal of honor on Thursday.

And awards were also given to those not part of the department, but still play a vital role.

"A couple members gave their wives awards for supporting them in their diffcult jobs each and every day," said Sheriff Rob Maciol. "As you know, we have members battling cancer and they come to work each and every day, so we acknowledge them for their commitment to their jobs and community, but they're fighting every day for our protection and their own life."

The Award of Excellence was given to Sgt. Denise Luker.
