Eight law enforcement agencies and officers in the Saginaw area were recognised for all they do in the line of duty by the Saginaw Exchange Club. The Club, a local community service organization around since 1911, has been recognising area police and firefighters annually.

Officers from the Michigan state crime lab of Bridgeport; Michigan state tri-city police post; the Saginaw, Saginaw Township, and Thomas Township Police departments; Saginaw county sheriff’s department; and officers from local FBI and BAYANET branches; were all seen for the hard work they have done during 2018 and so far in 2019 .

Honored as Officer of the year, nominees were suggested by members of their departments and each had a hand in cases or programs helping the area grow. Many of the nominees already communicate with each other regularly and cited the case earlier this year with the shooting of officer Jeff Koenig as something that not only unified the departments, but the Saginaw Community.
