Davenport Police Honor Hero

Posted: Updated:

The Davenport Noon Optimist Club recognized one of the city's heroes.

They presented a local police officer with the respect for law award every year. Friends, family and coworkers gathered as a detective was honored for his outstanding skill and dedication.

This year's recipient is working undercover to help solve cases so he can't be identified. Officials say it's important to give credit to those working to make Davenport safer.

"These guys are the boots on the ground so to speak. They make my job easy," Davenport Chief Frank Donchez said. "I sit behind a desk all week but the guys that are out there clearing cases, making arrests, making the citizens of Davenport safer, those are the people that need to be recognized."

This is the 36th year the club has presented the award to a local officer.
