VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Two law enforcement officers are honored in Valdosta for their dedication and exceptional service to the community.

Lowndes County deputy Andrew Denmark and Valdosta police sergeant Jay Wolfe both received the officer of the year award from the Rotary Club of Valdosta.

Wolfe helped solve 20 home burglaries and multiple business break-ins over the last year. Supervisors say he has a strong work ethic and positive attitude. He serves on the tactical operations unit and leads a shift of patrol officers.

Wolfe is originally from Augusta. "I've grown to really love this city. This city is my home now. It means the world to me that my fellow officers and community have recognized me for and I just enjoy doing it."

Deputy Andrew Denmark was recognized for saving a woman who was being held at knife point. He serves on the DEA regional task force to fight illegal drugs and the sheriff's office special response team. The Rotary Club also raises money for officers and their families in times of need. Officers are grateful for the organization's support.
