Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office hands out awards

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's office honored several employees along with members of the community Friday.

The annual awards ceremony was held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

A good Samaritan award was given to Steven Pippin, a brave young man who stepped into a situation that could have been life threatening for a sheriff's deputy.

"His hand was on the butt of the gun trying to get the gun from the cop's waistband and I knew things would have gone downhill if he grabbed the gun, so I grabbed his arm to get it away from the gun as long as I could until help showed up," Pippin recalled.

PBSO also honored several of its employees with awards.
