Northeast Ohio Medical University Police Department Sergeant Shawn Parker was recently honored for his dedication to Lake County, as demonstrated through efforts such as volunteering as a special officer for the Eastlake Police Department.

Sgt. Parker was presented the Lake County Safe Communities – Outstanding Community Partner Award for his work developing a county-wide crash reconstruction response team, offering seat belt safety classes at a local elementary school, and more — all while working full-time at NEOMED.

The annual “Hometown Heroes” event held September 12 at Great Lakes Mall in Mentor, Ohio, focuses on local law enforcement, fire/EMS, military and veteran services and other organizations that serve the residents of Lake County.
