DENVER (CBS4)– Two Denver Police officers who went above and beyond the call of duty were honored on Wednesday. They were honored with Citizens Appreciate Police Awards for Acts of Kindness.

Technician Amy Esten came in contact with a victim of domestic violence in August 2017. The woman was trying to get home to Atlanta to get her children who were placed in protective custody.
