Dozens of SAPD Officers Honored by Dallas PD

Nearly three dozen San Antonio police officers were recognized Tuesday for assisting the Dallas Police Department following the tragic loss of five officers last year.

Dallas PD Assistant Chief John Lawton and others from the department drove down to pass out certificates of merit and ribbons to the 33 SAPD officers.

“To come out, to leave their families, to leave their job, their community to come support us in our community, the least we can do is come down and show them that we really appreciated their sacrifice for us,” Lawton said.

SAPD Chief William McManus called the gesture gratifying.
