Thanking Officer Brandon Murphy For His Bravery And Service July 18, 2016
Dan Kildee, D-MI
"Mr. Speaker, I ask the United States House of Representatives to join me in recognizing Officer Brandon Murphy for the service he has provided to Michigan’s Fifth Congressional District and the Bay City community. Brandon Murphy is a recipient of the Police Officers Association of Michigan’s (POAM) Police Officer of the Year Award. This honor was awarded following an encounter where Officer Murphy was injured by gunfire while successfully managing to apprehend a suspect and stop a violent crime spree. Officer Murphy’s personal dedication to public safety at the cost of his own safety deserves the utmost honor, and a Police Officer of the Year Award is a worthy and deserving recognition for such an exemplary officer. It is my honor to represent such brave and honorable members of our community, and Officer Brandon Murphy is a shining example. The true measure of an exemplary public safety officer was exhibited by Officer Murphy when he sacrificed his own wellbeing in order to prevent the further victimization of the community he serves. Mr. Speaker, I applaud the work done by Officer Brandon Murphy and thank him for the service he has provided to our community."
