    I post a lot of bad-cop stories. They get disheartening as it seems the few bad cops get the attention and the thousands of good, honest and hard working cops get ignored.

    Well, it's time to recognize them. They do a job that's often dangerous, sometimes deadly and thankless.

    This thread is intended to showcase the heros in uniform.

    January 22, 2010

    KENMORE, NY – As one Kenmore police officer used a fire extinguisher to hold back the flames, two others dragged a man to safety before his car exploded earlier this month along the Buffalo border.

    Proclamations for outstanding service were presented at Tuesday’s Village Board meeting to Lt. Sheila Kirsch, Officers Douglas Rich and David Stapleton, and Dispatcher Deidre Manzella.

    Police officers who saved Craig Riley honored

    Two law enforcement officers who pulled Sutherlin resident Craig Riley, clinging to life, from a burning house almost three years ago were honored Thursday evening.

    Oregon State Police Trooper Aaron Baimbridge and Sutherlin Police Officer Troy Mills were awarded the American Police Hall of Fame's Silver Star for Bravery at a short ceremony held at Sutherlin Civic Auditorium.

    ...

    Mills and Baimbridge were the first two people on scene, Mahler told the 30 or so people gathered to honor them Thursday.

    “They went into the burning, smoke-filled house and were able to locate Mr. Riley and assist him out of the house,” Mahler said. “Those actions, in my mind, saved his life.

    Excellent idea, Bob. Bad apples may spoil whole barrels but there are a lot of barrels that contain nothing but good :tup:.

    I get so depressed reading the bad stories. I know they aren't the norm, but somedays it's just so disheartening. I need to be reminded that they are the exception, and damn it, the good guys need to be recognized for what they do.

    UK Awards for 'outstanding' efforts of city officers

    Wednesday, January 20, 2010, 07:00

    POLICE officers who tackled a knife-wielding maniac were among those honoured for their bravery and diligence at an awards ceremony last night.

    The Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable's awards ceremony for Plymouth recognised the efforts of several officers, including two motor patrol constables who were awarded the highest accolade, the Chief Constable's Commendation with gold star.

    Chief Constable Stephen Otter awarded his commendation to MPCs Clint Cox and Daniel Lewin, who were first on the scene at the Dousland double shooting, which claimed the lives of Andrew Pawlowski and Beverley Shears.

    Plymouth Commander, Chief Supt Andy Bickley also handed commendations to six officers – Pc Daniel Box, Pc Sara King, Pc Nicholas Mortimore, Pc Peter Drew and Pc Dawn Phillips – after they attended a fire in June 2008 started by a deranged man at a building in West Hoe. The man pulled two knives on the officers as a fire raged in the small flat before they were finally able to subdue and arrest him.

    Road Safety Officer Pc Ian Tanner
    was recognised for his "outstanding commitment and professionalism". His work is cited as helping elevate Plymouth to the top of the national table for reducing the number of people who are killed or seriously injured on the city's roads.

    Chief Supt Bickley said: "The accolades are for wide ranging achievements from meticulous investigations to heroic acts. These offer only a glimpse into the outstanding work being undertaken every day across the city, of which I am extremely proud."

    ...

    Other recipients included:
    PCSO Tracey Baring, Royal Humane Society Award;
    Mr Paul Chudley (retd. Inspector), Lifetime Achievement in Policing Award.

    Three other officers got the Commander's Commendation, they were: Pc Justin Bishop, Sgt Dave Cortes and Pc Graham Seaborne.
