On Tuesday, December 17, Memorial Fund Chairman & CEO Craig W. Floyd presented Detective Scott Wisner with the Officer of the Month Award for December 2013 during Sandy Hook Appreciation Night, an event hosted by the Connecticut State Police Union that honored officers who responded to the Sandy Hook school shooting in December 2012.
Detective Wisner was selected as December’s Officer of the Month due to his heroic actions during the pursuit of robbery suspects in April of 2013.
Mr. Floyd gave a brief presentation about the Memorial Fund and the Officer of the Month Award Program, and then presented Detective Wisner with his Officer of the Month Award. In presenting this month’s award, Mr. Floyd stated “As long as there are people like Detective Wisner among us who are willing to risk their lives for the safety and protection of others, there is indeed great hope for the future of our children and for the future of our nation.”
