WASHINGTON (AP) - Members of the Metropolitan Police Department and other law enforcement officials have been honored at an annual awards ceremony.
The event was held Thursday night at Gallaudet University. Mayor Vincent Gray and Police Chief Cathy Lanier were among the officials in attendance.
Police officers and staff from across the department were honored for various acts within the last year. Some awards also went to people outside the police department.
Among those honored was Richard Marianos of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, which partnered with police last year in a major weapons investigation.
