The state environmental conservation officer credited with saving the life of her partner who got shot while the two were investigating a complaint of illegal deer hunting last week in Columbia County has been lauded before for outstanding actions on the job.
In 2011, Lt. Liza Bobseine was named "Officer of the Year" by the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association for her role in hunting education and ensuring safe firearms use. A week after receiving the award, Bobseine was credited with saving the life of a 66-year-old woman who was sitting in her car in a parking lot and had stopped breathing, according to the East Hampton Patch newspaper.
