Also recognized was Dorsey Roberts, who in June alerted his son-in-law, Officer Alejandro Alvarez, when he heard his neighbor yelling for help.
The two men went over together and saw three masked suspects exiting a studio. As the three suspects were running away, Alvarez chased the suspects and Roberts tackled and detained one of them until patrol officers arrived.
Several civilians were also awarded certificates of merit for good deeds.
Those honored included Tammy Sederquist and her teenage son John, who called police after coming across a loaded handgun in the parking lot of a Windward shopping center and waited for officers to arrive.
John Fuga was recognized for calling 911 and confronting a man who exited his neighbor’s home with an air compressor. The suspect dropped the air compressor and took off running.
