Three Amherst patrol officers received a First Responder Recognition Award for their lifesaving efforts earlier this year.
Amherst patrol officers Felipe Feliciano, Matthew Frydryk and Joshua Harris were recognized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Municipal Police Training Committee at a ceremony held at Springfield Technical Community College on June 18.
In February, the three officers performed CPR on a 48-year-old man who was in cardiac arrest and provided lifesaving measures the victim needed.
The ceremony acknowledged first responders from across the state for providing first-aid assistance.
Frydryk began his career with the Amherst Police Department in 2008. Feliciano has been with the department since 2004 and Harris since 2010.
