At the County Board on Tuesday, Deputy Mike Trygg was presented with his 15 years of service award and a lifesaving award.

Deputy Trygg assisted the Hawley Police Department and Hawley HERT on medical call, when the young lady they were speaking with lost consciousness and stopped breathing. Deputy Trygg and Hawley HERT members immediately began CPR and after about five minutes, the female began breathing on her own. FM Ambulance arrived on scene and began treating the young lady as well. The mother of the victim later approached Deputy Trygg and gave him a tear filled hug and thanked him for saving her daughter's life.

Deputy Trygg was nominated for this award by Sgt. Josh Schroeder.

Deputy Trygg has been with the Sheriff's Office for 15 years and will be retiring on February 22, 2018. Deputy Trygg worked for the Moorhead Police Department prior to joining the Sheriff's Office. He has been a training deputy for our department as well as our crime prevention deputy. Deputy Trygg has represented the Sheriff's Office very well over the years and we wish him the best in retirement.

Congratulations to Deputy Trygg on his lifesaving award and his upcoming retirement. Best of luck to you Mike, you will be missed by our department and by the citizens of Clay County.
