Police Chief Russell Whitman says officers Steve Dunham, Amanda Myers and Kyle O'Neal and dispatcher Lindsay Alvarez will receive the Police Exemplary Performance Award. The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports the presentation is planned Monday at the Franklin city council meeting.
The boy told Dunham in August he hadn't eaten for days, so the officer took him to a restaurant. He left him with Alvarez to join the other officers at the child's home, finding four older boys living amid garbage and cat urine.
