Tyler Police Honor Their Best And Brightest

They serve and protect us, and tonight they are recognized for their valor and bravery.

The Tyler Police Department held its annual awards banquet this evening, honoring exemplary members both civilian and sworn officers.

 Recognition was given to those involved in the shooting of DPS Trooper Steven Stone and the fatal shooting of Constable Dale Geddie in 2006.

Awards were handed out tonight not only to those involved in dangerous situations such as these, but also to those who do a good job day in and day out.

<it means a lot to them and their families because our families sacrifice a lot of us to be officers and so we allow the families to come out here with them and it's just a great time to celebrate and remember their accomplishments that they did in the year 2006."
