Among those honored, two officers befriended a visually impaired teenager who was being bullied and had suicidal thoughts.

Since meeting the teenager, they’ve continued to support him.

“Encouragement and to make sure that he stays healthy and knowing that if he is bullied he can talk to us and not fall into the dark space where he feels suicidal,” said Officer Monique Sedberry.
