DETROIT (FOX 2) - Detroit police officers and firefighters who have shown bravery and heroism will be recognized Thursday at the Above & Beyond Awards.
First responders such as Sgt. Kevin Treasvant, Officer Eric McCombs, and Officer Danny Ruiz-Cruz, who saved an unresponsive baby girl earlier this year, will be honored.
Former Mayor Dave Bing and former Piston Earl Cureton will speak at the 9th annual event focused on heroes.
"Our guys are not looking for a pat on the back but it is encouraging to see that you and the people you go out and serve with will dedicate a day toward you publicly and say thank you," Detroit Fire Commissioner Eric Jones said.
