It flew under the radar a bit, so I wanted to make sure you knew about the annual awards ceremony that the Memphis Police Department held this week.

I encourage you to join me in thanking all of the award winners by visiting the MPD on Facebook, where it posted all of the honorees.
I also encourage you to continue to remember the sacrifice of Officer Verdell Smith, who you’ll recall passed away in the line of duty last summer. He was honored Tuesday as MPD’s TOP COP — a proper tribute to a Memphis hero.
