Deputies honored for giving their all
BATON ROUGE- More than fifty current, retired and deceased members of the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office were honored in a special ceremony Tuesday night.
Four deputies were remembered posthumously for their service: Dustin Hamilton, Corey Gueho, Dana Scott and Gwendolyn Clayton. Hamilton died in a crash involving his cruiser in September.
Deputy Ricky Bond was honored for saving a life in a car crash recently. Bond noticed what he thought was a trash fire on the side of the road, stopped to investigate and realized it was a vehicle with a person inside. Bond rescued the person and was awarded the department's Medal of Valor.
"I'm not a hero," Bond told WBRZ News 2. "I was just doing my job. I just so happened to be at the right place at the right time."
