The Bismarck Police Department handed out 11 different awards this afternoon to thirty different people.
Some of them went to their officers, others to civilians.
One particular police officer received the life saver award.
He saved a man’s life.
He got the call and says he was only a block away and so he was first on the scene.
Nathan Ybarra, Life Saver Award, says, “You come to work, you hit the street and you don’t know what your day is going to look like and for me that night I was just in the right place at the right time when this call came out and I was able to help this guy.”
Ybarra is known around the station for his mustache… along with his life saving efforts.
