Filipino American Deputy Sheriff Awarded Medal of Valor

Asian Journal, Posted: Sep 22, 2009

MONTEBELLO, Calif. Filipino-American Deputy Jose "Joe" Nanquil, 43, was one of the 15 recipients of the 2009 Los Angeles County Sheriff Department Annual Medal of Valor and Meritorious Conduct Awards.

Nanquil, a 20-year veteran of the department, was honored with six other sheriff deputies who overpowered a kidnapping suspect and saved the lives of three hostages during a hostage drama in Brea in 2007. The Valor Awards Program was established to officially and publicly recognize the exceptionally heroic acts performed by members of the LA County Sheriff Department, and the Medal of Valor, in particular, is the highest honor a member of the Sheriff Department can receive.
