The Columbian

VANCOUVER — The Clark County Public Safety Alliance recently presented the Angels with Badges awards to four local Clark County Sheriff’s Office members who responded to a distress call on Sept. 11, helping an individual experiencing a mental health crisis.

Deputies Chris Freudenberg, Ryan Preston, Rick Osborne and Sgt. Jason Granneman were honored for being “timely, coordinated, purposeful, and so caring,” according to the award.

The four were called out at about 4 p.m. on a Monday afternoon to the scene of a man who was dangling from a freeway overpass near the junction of Interstate 5 and Interstate 205. According to an article in The Columbian, they were able to assist the man, who was experiencing a mental health crisis, and after 20 minutes of talking with him, persuaded him to climb back to safety and receive treatment.
