39 of Fargo's finest officers were honored today at a special ceremony in city hall.
Service awards, commendations, and life saving medals were among the awards handed out.
A group of officers were commended for talking a man out of jumping off the 25th street overpass in July.
Fargo Police Chief Keith Ternes says today's awards are a chance to thank officers that take on extra challenges and responsibilities.
"It's indicative of the type of work members of the Fargo Police Department do every day that far too often goes unnoticed and at times is grossly under appreciated," Ternes said.
Jamey Gahner was named police officer of the year at today's ceremony.
