GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The green and gold honored the boys in blue Monday.
The Green Bay Packers recognized exemplary Wisconsin law enforcement officers who go above and beyond the call of duty during its Packers Protect and Serve Award ceremony at Johnsonville Tailgate Village.
The second annual awards ceremony coincides with National Police Week.
The winners of the individual awards, the K9 award, the school resource officer award and the department award include:
A number of local departments had multiple honors, including the Green Bay Police Department.
Green Bay officer Scott Salzmann and his K9 partner Pyro were recognized.
"It is truly humbling. I don’t always feel like I deserve it. I just try to come in and do my job and do it well and Pyro the same way but it’s truly honoring to be honored that way and kind of be recognized by the community and by my department. It means more to me than they’ll really ever know," Salzmann said.
The event included lunch and special guest speakers, including Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, former Packers player LeRoy Butler and De Pere Chief of Police Jeremy Muraski.
