Patrolman Nate Edmonds awarded Myron Dress Award

At the Port Clinton City Council meeting on Tuesday, June 24, Port Clinton Police Chief Rob Hickman announced that Patrolman Nate Edmonds was awarded the Myron “Mike” Dress Award. The award was started by then Port Clinton Police Chief Walt Bahnsen to honor Myron Dress who was a member of the Port Clinton Reserve Police and passed away after a short battle with cancer. 

“Mike Dress was the composite of a police officer as he was caring, professional and always there when called upon,” said Police Chief Hickman.

The award was instituted by the department to recognize individual officers who have had an outstanding year.

The Port Clinton Police Department continues to honor Mike Dress’ memory, his service and compassion by recognizing individual officers with this award.
