Officers honored


Dozens of Allentown's 'boys in blue' were honored for going above and beyond the call of duty.

A commendation and award presentation was held Wednesday morning at the Scottish Rite Cathedral on Hamilton Street.

Dozens of officers were honored for making the city a safer place to live and work.

A number of civilians were also recognized for their contributions.

The commendation ceremony is held every year to coincide with National Police Week.
