Employee Nomination Winner

Deputy Nick Haggerty

Corrections Deputy (Sheriff’s Office)

“On February 9th Deputy Haggerty saved the life of a detainee. While conducting security checks in the male medium security area of the Livingston County Jail, Deputy Haggerty viewed a choking inmate. Without delay, he administered the Heimlich maneuver. Proper technique was utilized, and the blockage was cleared. Deputy Haggerty continued to assist and called for a medical evaluation. The elderly inmate was evaluated and cleared. I have witnessed Deputy Haggerty interact with many types of inmates and unpredictable situations. This example is just one of the many that should be recognized.”
