Commander Burt Marsh, Officer John Lallas and Bothell Police Chief Carol Cummings
John Lallas was honored as Police Officer of the Year at the Bothell American Legion annual First Responder banquet on January 11th. John has been in law enforcement for four years and has been a member of the Bothell Police Department for the past year. On May 14th while he was on patrol he was dispatched to a vehicle accident in Bothell at 100th NE at 145th NE, a SUV went into a water retention pond.The injured passenger told the officer the driver was trapped and unable to exit the vehicle. The vehicle was deep enough that Officer Lallas had to swim to the vehicle, he was able to force open the door, cut away the deployed airbag and remove the driver. The Uber driver that was trapped sent an email to the Chief Cummings, "without regard for his own safety he dove into the pond and swam to my vehicle. He cut my side airbag free and struggled to get the door open. He eventually was able to help free me and saw that I got to shore safely. I can tell you without a doubt that night I might have drowned without his quick actions."
