[ARCHIVED] Honoring our Heroes: Officer Nicholas Lewin

Honoring Our Heroes (2)

Every member of the Baytown Police Department goes into work with the same goal, of serving and protecting our community, every day. That means every day has the potential to save a life. That day came for Officer Nicholas Lewin on June 5, 2022.

Officer Lewin responded to a troubling call just after midnight. When he arrived, Officer Lewin found a man threatening to hang himself from a tree. Sadly, the man was in the tree with a rope around his neck. After making concerning threats, Officer Lewin relied on his training and began talking to the man, showing him compassion and empathy. After gaining the man’s trust and building a relationship, Officer Lewin was able to get the man to remove the rope from his neck and come down off the tree.

Officer Lewin was recognized during last week’s Baytown City Council meeting. Chief John Stringer presented him with a Life Saving Award and thanked him for his efforts that saved another citizen’s life.

Chief Stringer said, “Officer Lewin’s efforts to save a life bring great credit, not only upon himself, but also to the Baytown Police Department. We find that these are the highest traditions of law enforcement service and certainly exemplary of the Baytown Police Department.”
