Beaverton Police Officer Up For National Award

BEAVERTON, Ore. – A Beaverton police officer is up for a national award after making a heroic rescue.

You can see on Officer Nicholas Jacobs’ body cam footage that when he arrived to a report of a crash last August 30th, the car was on its side and fully on fire.

That’s when Officer Jacob’s battles intense heat and small explosions to rescue the person inside.

The person suffered only minor injuries.

Jacobs is now up for the Axon Rise Award, which goes to a person caught being heroic on body cam footage.

You can vote for Officer Jacobs until Friday.

The top-10 vote getters then go in front of a panel of judges, who will pick the three winners.

If Officer Jacobs wins, he and a guest will receive an all-expense paid trip to the Axon Accelerate Conference in Arizona.
