Four Youth help The Dalles Police Department

From the City of The Dalles Police Facebook page:

Last week these four local youth witnessed a confrontation between a male and a female in the downtown area. They knew that something was wrong and that the female might be in danger. They took quick action to run to the Police Department and alert authorities who ensured the safety of the female. For their efforts, Chief Worthy presented them with citizenship awards and offered words of thanks and encouragement to keep acting in the best interests of the community.

Chief Worthy stated “Your actions remind me of the words attributed to Sir Edmund Burke in his famous quote, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’. I am happy to recognize each of your today with this certificate of citizenship which I hope that you can keep as a reminder of how it feels to do the right thing”.

These outstanding young citizens are:

Izaiah Dingeman

Aiden Cervantes
