|On May 20, 2013, Mayor Dean Ueckert (right) presented the Ron and Marilyn Neiman Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00 to Madeleine Loney (center). Madeleine is a graduating senior who resides in Lewisville. She has been a volunteer since 2009. She was on the first place team that won the North Texas Teen Court Competition in 2012 and has assisted with training new volunteers. |
The Teen Court program runs throughout the year and is an alternative program for youth who commit a Class C Misdemeanor. Instead of paying a fine for the offense, the defendant completes community service hours and serves jury terms to have their case dismissed.
Teen Court utilizes youth volunteers ages 13-17 to run the program. The volunteers play various roles, such as jurors, bailiffs, attorneys, assisting at the registration table, acting as master jury judges and also training new volunteers. Students who volunteer for the Teen Court earn community service hours for their help and learn about the judicial system.

|Lewisville Police Chief Russell Kerbow and Mayor Dean Ueckert awarded Lewisville Police Officers Roberto Limon, Jonmichael Martinez and Michael Hernandez the Medal of Valor for bravery in an incident last October where they had to shoot an armed suspect. |
On October 24, 2012, at approximately 10:22 p.m., the Department received calls regarding a male who was displaying a pistol and approaching cars on foot in the McDonald’s parking lot on Round Grove Road.
Officers Roberto Limon and Michael Hernandez located the suspect vehicle and initiated a “known-risk” traffic stop. Officer Jonmichael Martinez arrived at the location to assist in the
Officers Limon and Hernandez began directing orders to the suspect. Upon exiting his vehicle, the suspect refused to face away from the officers as ordered. The officers observed the suspect holding a handgun in his right hand pointed downward. The officers directed the suspect to drop his weapon, but instead he raised his weapon.
All three officers fired at the suspect, and the suspect was struck and fell to the ground. Officer Limon handcuffed the suspect and then checked him for injuries. The officers began emergency aid until paramedics arrived. The suspect did not survive his wounds.
The officers exhibited courage and bravery while carrying out their duties which is a credit to their character and professionalism and is in keeping with the highest traditions of police service. Therefore, on behalf of the City of Lewisville and the Lewisville Police Department, it is my honor to present each of them with the Police Medal of Valor.
