  1. what exactly does it mean to be “officially commended”? Nice words spoke about you in the presence of colleagues? No fruit basket, day pass or complimentary dinner for 2?

    Just nice words that will fade away? Morale must be really high then

  2. DUTY-BOUND
    The gesture is ‘…good for morale boosting.’

    There may not have been any irony, if their Fire Engine was not involved.

    Those that are unfamiliar with the ‘…Law Enforcement Code of Ethics,’ part of it is provided for their benefit’ It states, ‘…As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to help mankind, namely ‘…To protect life and safeguard property.’

    They would have been deemed ‘…grossly negligent’ not to do all that was necessary within their powers, including ‘…risking their own lives in protecting the lives of the occupants of the car.’

    Though ironically, resulted from a traffic accident in which they were involved, they had done no favour, but simply ‘…discharged their official duty.’ No ‘…food baskets Hmmmmmm.’

  3. Seems like Mr. Rodney and Mr. Wade happier than the actual officers involved in the rescue. Good to see them smiling though. Their jobs are tough enough already. all the best gentlemen

  4. REAL TALK:

    You may have misidentified one of the senior officers in the photo.

    The officer to the left of Acting Commissioner Rodney is in fact ‘…Assistant Commissioner Elvis Weaver,’ OI/c of the Fire Service.
