I thanked them for their valor and wished them a speedy recovery. Both indicated that the rookie officer, who was working his first full day on the job and was seriously injured, acted heroically. Watching the video and seeing the quick action they took to avoid any loss of life was a stark reminder to thank officers for the bravery they demonstrate every single day. I also spoke with Chief Yahner and I know that he is doing everything he can to ensure the safety of our officers. Our thoughts are with every officer on the street today working to keep our city safe."</p><div style="text-align:center;"></div><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>-30-</strong></p><p><br></p></div>9/13/2016 9:25:00 PMRobbie Sherwood 480-246-7944
