101 Precinct Honors Its Own Heroes
The 101 Precinct honored some of its own when the 3rd Annual 101 Precinct Medal Day ceremony was held on May 19. The men and women of the 101, their family and friends gathered at St. Mary’s Star Of The Sea Church as awards were given out for service to the community.
Awards for excellent police duty were presented to 18 members of the precinct and eight officers of the 101 were honored for meritorious police duty.
Sgt. Raymond Johnson, of the detective squad, received a commendation for his part in a drug bust in May 2000. Cop of the year honors were given to Officer Thomas Cappolla and Officer Dennis Lewis. Cappolla had the highest arrest record in the precinct. Lewis received his award for the influence he has had with the youth of the community in his role as Youth Officer.
