"Top Cops" honored in White House Rose Garden

President Obama honored more than two dozen officers who won awards for taking action beyond the call of duty

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is thanking the nation's law enforcement officers for risking their lives to keep Americans safe.

The President on Friday honored more than two dozen officers who won "Top Cop" awards for unusual bravery in taking action beyond the call of duty.

In the White House Rose Garden, Obama said the award winners represent thousands of officers who serve without accolades. He said his administration is committed to spending more money to hire new police officers and equip and train them well.
