Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine honored more than 100 law enforcement officers, dispatchers, prosecutors, and clerks for their outstanding efforts to protect Ohioans and save lives in a ceremony Friday.   

Twenty-two of the awards went to those who responded to the call of wild animals let loose on a Muskingum County farm a year ago.
The awards were presented during the second and final day of the Attorney General's Law Enforcement Conference in Columbus.   
Attorney General DeWine also recognized the longest-serving sheriff in America, Pickaway County Sheriff Dwight Radcliff.
He was given a lifetime achievement award.   
Radcliff, who is retiring in January, was elected sheriff for the first time in 1964.
