2008 Medal of Valor Recipients

Why:
Annually, the Los Angeles Dodgers pay tribute to the winners of the Medal of Valor Award during a pre-game ceremony. The Medal of Valor is the LAPD’s highest, most prestigious honor and is awarded to officers who have gone above and beyond the normal demands of police service and who have displayed acts of extreme courage while consciously facing imminent peril. During the presentation, LA Dodger fans will hear about acts of such heroism exemplified by this year’s recipients. Stories include:

•An officer who engaged and would not back down from a ruthless, well-known gang member who was directly threatening him with an AK-47 assault rifle

•Several officers, engaged in a deadly pursuit, who withstood a barrage of gunfire from suspects using automatic weapons. The officers were successful in stopping the suspects and their vehicle.

•Two officers who rescued a victim from a burning vehicle just seconds before the victim would have been completely immolated

•Two officers who attempted to rescue a victim from a burning motor home under extremely dangerous conditions

For information regarding field access, please contact Yvonne Carrasco, Dodger Media Relations at 323-224-4220. For additional information, please contact LAPD Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
