NYPD honors Finest at annual Medal Day

Two police officers who gave their lives in the line of duty received top honors at  NYPD Medal Day, reported the Queens Chronicle.

Brian Moore, 25, of the 105th Precinct’s Anti-Crime Unit, and Randolph Holder of the Bronx Housing Bureau’s Anti-Crime Unit, 33, both were awarded the Medal of Honor, the NYPD’s highest award.

Det. Moore was shot in Queens on May 2, 2015 and died of his injuries two days later. Det. Holder was shot and killed October 2, 2015.

Other honorees included Officer Kenneth Healey, who also received the Medal of Honor, for his courage after being struck in the head with a hatchet by a man claiming jihad in October 2014. Healey has returned to the job after more than a year of surgery and rehabilitation.
