Officer Matthew Alves and Patrol Officer Kenneth Henneberry
Cumberland (RI) Police Department
Washington, DC—The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has named Officers Officer Matthew Alves (left) and Patrol Officer Kenneth Henneberry (right), of the Cumberland (RI) Police Department, as the recipients of its Officers of the Month Award for March 2019.
Officer Alves and Patrol Officer Kenneth Henneberry were the first to arrive on the scene of a three-alarm house fire on Valentine’s Day. They noticed a woman and her 10-month old child trapped on the second floor. Officer Alves climbed the lattice outside the home to the second floor, grabbed the child and passed the baby off to Officer Henneberry. Officer Aves then went back and up and helped bring the woman to safety.
