Hero Cops Honored
Hero cops honored at the The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation 2015 annual Awards Luncheon.
This video features the gripping account of Ofc. Michael Wrobel and Ofc. Javier Alonso, both shot in a gun battle with a man intent on killing.
Last year, on June 14, as Ofc. Michael Wrobel and Ofc. Javier Alonso took to the street with their Gang Enforcement Team, a subject out on parole for shooting at police, grabbed his loaded guns and hopped into a car, looking for trouble. He found it. When his car was stopped by Ofc. Alonso and his partner, the subject opened fire. There’s an incredible story of heroism in the seconds that followed. The officers themselves deliver that story and the emotion of that moment with clarity and poise.
In my work as a video producer, it is always an honor to meet and interview these real-life heroes. It’s even more gratifying to bring their stories to the public.
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation serves our fallen heroes and officers who have suffered catastrophic injury. We’re honored to tell the story of Ofc. Michael Wrobel and Ofc. Javier Alonso, hero cops recently honored with the CPMF Award of Valor.
