Six courageous citizens were honored Tuesday for their quick, selfless acts that helped victims in Long Beach. "Each of these Courageous Citizens cast aside fear and risked their personal welfare to help victims of crime," District Attorney Lacey said. "I extend my personal gratitude to this group of remarkable people for these acts of selflessness and bravery."
The lunchtime ceremony was held at The Queen Mary Grand Salon, and hosted by the Rotary Club of Long Beach.
It was part of an ongoing push by the District Attorney’s office to honor citizens who have “performed extraordinary acts of valor and selflessness in assisting in criminal prosecution, aiding victims, preventing crime and capturing suspects.”
