ANNUAL PUBLIC SAFETY AWARDS HANDED OUT
Acts of bravery, courage and heroism in the face of danger... all awarded Wednesday night as the city of Port Huron's Public Safety Department held an annual awards ceremony for firefighters, police officers and ordinary citizens who go above and beyond the call when faced with emergency situations. Over 60 awards were given out during the event, with Officer Adrianne Mynsberge telling us the timing of the ceremony also ties in with the National Police Week this week and the national Peace Officers Memorial Day One citizens award went to those who helped save a woman who had jumped into the chilly waters of the St. Clair River in March, while another was given to a couple people who saved a woman's life as she prepared to jump off the Blue Water Bridge. Also, RadioFirst's Sean Michaels, the morning host at WBTI, was recognized for his work with the Port Huron Police CAPTURE program, which is an anonymous tip line for helping police apprehend wanted suspects and criminals. CAPTURE announcements are made on local radio stations.
