Police investigator, firefighter recognized

Firefighter Ross Vezin and police investigator George Erdel were honored last week as the Exchange Club of Beaufort's firefighter and law enforcement officers of the year, respectively.

Vezin joined the city's fire service in 2008. Erdel became a city police officer in 2006 after serving in the Marine Corps, a news release said.

They were presented the awards Sunday during the city's ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
