The Irondequoit Police Department hosted an award ceremony tonight to honor members of the community.
The awards were given out for exceptional acts and work that has been done over the past few months. Some of the awards included a citizen award and a unit commendation award.
The event not only honored community members but also members of the police department.
“I think it’s important for the officers to know that we value their service and value their dedication, and value their heroism and that we do this before the public so that they can be recognized appropriately,” says Richard Tantalo, Irondequoit Police Chief.
Other officers were awarded excellent police service awards and officer of the month recognition.
