She said Flores has dedicated himself to the organization and making sure kids are safe.
“It is very well deserving,” she said. “He has truly shown compassion, commitment and dedication to the child advocacy model.”
Former Clark County Prosecutor Stephen Schumaker handed Flores the award Friday. Flores is a calm officer who always takes his job seriously and had a soft spot for kids, said Schumaker, who now works at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations.
“Time and time again, I saw his dedication,” Schumaker said. “As years have gone by I got to know Jeff in incredible situations. I saw him try to handle some of the most difficult situations.”
Flores said the recognition by the Clark County Child Advocacy Center is an honor.
“I appreciate that,” he said. “I have been surrounded by great people. This is a great organization and we are lucky to have it.”
