WFPD Honors Officers, Civilians, & Retirees

More than a dozen officers and civilians in Wichita Falls were honored by the police department for their dedication and service.

At the awards and retirement ceremony, held at the Public Safety Training Center downtown at 10 AM Tuesday morning, nine officers and five civilians were recognized for their work and support. In the group of 14, two were retirees who had a combined 34 years of service under their belts.

Newschannel 6 spoke with Brandie Young, an officer with the WFPD Crime Prevention Unit, about the importance of such an event. She told us, "we like to honor the officers for anything they do special."

Two of the nine officers were also awarded life-saving commendations, one for helping to save the life of a choking child.
