Nicholas Smith receives 'Cop of the Year' Award from the Mount Vernon Police Foundation

Police Officer Nicholas Smith, assigned to the Detective Division, was nominated for and received the 'Cop of the Year' Award from the Mount Vernon Police Foundation at their annual Awards ceremony at the Westchester Manor in Hastings-on-Hudson on April 28th. Officer Smith was investigating a burglary when one of the people he was interviewing ran from him. After a short pursuit, the suspect pulled a gun from his waistband. Officer Smith, fearing for his safety and his life, drew his own firearm and shot the suspect once, causing the suspect drop his gun. The suspect was immediately arrested and is currently charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon, amongst other charges.  

We salute Nick on his job well done!!!
