17 Medal of Valor Honorees

Why:       
To honor and recognize police officers who have distinguished themselves with conspicuous bravery or heroism above and beyond the normal demands of police service.  Demonstrations of great courage among this year’s award recipients include harrowing rescue attempts from burning cars and a prolonged SWAT Team call out involving a very dangerous suspect in which one officer sacrificed his life and another was seriously injured.

Chief of Police Charlie Beck will present the Medal of Valor to the recipients at this moving ceremony before an anticipated 1,000 guests, including:

- Civic, business and community leaders
- Local, state and federal law enforcement officials
- Colleagues, family and friends of award recipients

Additional:   
The Los Angeles Police Foundation will host the 49th Medal of Valor Awards Luncheon and is the largest source of private funding for the LAPD.  The Foundation's mission is to create partnerships to provide resources and programs that help the police improve our communities.  For more information regarding the foundation, please visit: www.lapolicefoundation.org.
