Mayor Annise Parker and Police Chief Charles McClelland, Jr., handed out awards during the local commemoration of National Police Week.
During the ceremony, twenty-nine police officers and civilian workers were honored for their contributions to public safety.
It is during Police Week that officers remember and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice of their lives so others may live in safety and peace.
Some officers couldn’t be identified because they work undercover investigations.
The awards ceremony was held at the Downtown Aquarium.
