At the March 3, 2020 City Council meeting, the Mayor recognized three Choctaw police officers for their heroism in the line of duty. Officers Gillum, Hill, and Seeds were recognized for saving the lives of 3 people in 3 separate events. They will say they were just doing their job, but we know they went above and beyond. Thank you for your service to Choctaw, you are the epitome of professional public service. (pictured in no order are Officers Gillum, Hill, Seeds, Mayor Ross, and Chief Marshall.)
