BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Sam Houston State University student and Shenandoah police officer Jeremiah Ledesma was recently recognized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for his DWI arrest record at the department for 2019.

At the same ceremony, Officer Ledesma was also presented with a chief of police letter of commendation for an incident in September of this year.

While working an extra job, Ledesma helped save a stranger’s life when they suddenly collapsed and he performed CPR until the EMS crew arrived.

He joined the Shenandoah police department in January 2018.
