Two Albany County Dive Rescue Team members were recognized Tuesday for helping locate the body of a Converse County Sheriff’s Office deputy in the North Platte River this summer.
During the Albany County Commission’s regular meeting, Douglas Mayor Bruce Jones presented special recognition awards to Sgt. Ben Fritzen and Deputy Becky Spisak for being on the dive team that found the body of Converse County Deputy Brian Gross, 29, on July 31.
“These two, Sgt. Ben Fritzen and Deputy … Becky Spisak, came to our city and performed what I call above the call of duty,” Jones said.
