On October 8, 2015, Police Officer Christopher Berry, #10668 was in uniform, in his personal vehicle, on his way to an extra duty job. As he drove into a parking lot to get coffee, he observed two individuals wearing masks walk into a business and grab cash out of the registers. Officer Berry alerted 911 to send cover and waited for the suspects to exit the store. A struggle ensued between the suspects and the store owner. Officer Berry acted quickly. He gave loud verbal commands and pointed his gun at the suspects. As the suspects attempted to flee, Officer Berry grabbed and handcuffed one of the suspects. The other suspect fled but was later arrested. Officer Berry’s actions were selfless and courageous.
We honor you, Christopher Berry.
