HAWAII STATE CAPITOL (KHNL) -- He died just over a year ago, trying to apprehend a gunman at a local bar. Tuesday, Deputy Daniel Browne-Sanchez received special recognition by an international law enforcement organization.

Friends and colleagues gathered at the capitol to mark the anniversary of their fallen brother. Browne-Sanchez's mother Robina Browne attended to receive a plaque honoring her son by the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Those in attendance remembered a man they describe as selfless.

"What was so noble about Deputy Browne-Sanchez was not how he died, but how he lived," said Lt. Michael Oakland, a spokesperson with department of public safety. "Deputy Browne-Sanchez did not lose his life; he gave it."

"The support I've had from the law enforcement community has been really, really wonderful," said Robina Browne. "I can't express in words my personal feelings. It's really too difficult."

"He would say, carry on," said Deputy Rollin Canon, Browne-Sanchez's friend. "Carry on and do the best we can do. "

Browne-Sanchez will receive another posthumous honor. He will be inducted into the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington D.C., in May.
