Special to the Times


RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif. - Riverside County Sheriff Department correctional deputies, Manuel Padilla, Ashley Trakes, Bryan Warman, and Sergeant Angel Ramos were awarded the Medal of Valor April 2, for their heroism during a fight for their lives when a violent inmate escape attempt was made from the Blythe Jail in December, 2013.

Sheriff Stan Sniff honored 85 recipients for acts of heroism, courage, lifesaving, distinguished service, community service, and making a difference in the communities served by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department at the annual ceremony held at the Morongo Casino and Resort.

The award recipients included the men and women of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, department volunteers and members of the community. Several community members were recognized for various acts including community service, distinguished service and lifesaving.

The ceremony was attended by over 500 dignitaries and guests and was sponsored by private donations. A highlight of the event was the opening ceremony where Ramos sang the national anthem.

Three of the employees have returned to full duty, while one is still on the road to recovery.

The Medal of Valor is the department's highest award and may be awarded to department members who distinguish themselves by conspicuous heroism under exigent or life-threatening conditions, and consciously performing acts of bravery or other outstanding feats while facing imminent danger.

Padilla, Trakes and Warman are the first three correctional deputies to receive the Sheriff's distinguished Medal of Valor award in the history of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
