MUSCATINE, Iowa (KWQC) - Three Muscatine Police officers were honored Thursday night with a Lifesaving Award during the Muscatine City Council Meeting.

Both victims regained a pulse and were breathing when Muscatine Fire Department paramedics arrived on the scene.
Also Thursday, Muscatine Patrol Capt. Anthony Kies was formally selected as the next Muscatine police chief. He will replace retiring Chief Brett Talkington on Feb. 28.
