Last Friday, Independence Police Officer Eric Solberg was recognized with a Life Saving Award from the Oregon Peace Officers Association at their 52nd Annual Awards Banquet.

In December 2021, Officer Solberg responded to a report of a potential suicide and prevented the individual from taking their life through diligent action and compassionate and understanding speech.

Finding people who embody our core values of Integrity, Excellence, Courage, and Compassion is no easy feat. But with officers like Eric Solberg, we are proud to say we don’t have to look too hard.

Join us as we congratulate Officer Solberg for helping make our city a more peaceful place!
