I am aware of several acts of heroism as well as acts of kindness displayed by Dunwoody officers that are eligible for nomination but I will reserve my votes until I give it more thought and the deadline gets a little closer.

In all seriousness, the DeKalb Officers blog run by an anonymous DeKalb policeman has done more to identify issues within the Department and therefore affected real internal change which then impacts and improves the safety of the citizens relying on the DeKalb Police Department. Kudos to them.

Thank you for your recognition. I am truly honored.

Kudos to Dunwoody Officers, Rusty Furman and Lt. Oliver Fladrich for being nominated for this award.

Interesting that an anonymous blog fighting for transparency was actually nominated for the DeKalb Police Alliance - Safety Champion Award.
