At the April meeting of the Monroe County Legislature, Monroe County Deputy Sheriff Luke Zaporowski received a proclamation from Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, President Joe Carbone and Legislator Karla F. Boyce.
On March 15 while on routine patrol, Zaporowski noticed flames coming from the garage of a home on Clover Street in the town of Mendon. After calling for the fire department, Zaporowski was able to alert the homeowners and safely evacuate two adults and five children.
The actions of Zaporowski demonstrate the dedication seen daily by law enforcement members to serve and protect Monroe County residents. The Monroe County Legislature recognized Zaporowski for his selfless and heroic actions.
