NEWTON, N.C. – Catawba County Sheriff Don Brown commended Deputy Scott Sawyer for his actions involved in the rescuing of a distressed boater on lake Norman.

On July 30, 2020 Lake Patrol Deputies with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) discovered an adult male adrift in Lake Norman who was struggling to stay afloat after falling off a jet ski. LCSO deputies worked to keep the man afloat while calling for assistance. Deputy Sawyer, assigned to the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Lake Patrol Unit, responding to that call. When Deputy Sawyer arrived he assisted LCSO deputies in rescuing the distressed boater. This boater was ultimately loaded onto Sawyer’s patrol boat and taken to shore where EMS was waiting.

Deputy Sawyer has also been selected by his peers as the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Employee of the Month for July 2020. Sheriff Brown awarded Deputy Sawyer with a plaque commemorating this achievement as well as a challenge coin which is awarded to deputies who engage in exemplary service. Members of Deputy Sawyer’s family were present for this award ceremony.

Sheriff Brown: “I commend both Deputy Sawyer and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Lake Patrol

Deputies for their actions. Saving a life is the highest form of public service a deputy can

offer citizens they serve.”
