NCCo courthouse cops honored

Police officers working in the New Castle County Courthouse during the February shooting were honored for their courage on Saturday.

Capitol Police Chief William Jopp presented the Division's highest honor -- the Valor Award -- to six employees, Lt. Marshall Martine, Sgt. Michael Manley, Cpl. Arlene Redmond, Cpl. Steven Rinehart, Cpl. Scott Simpson, and Senior Security Officer Darryl Smith.

Other officers received awards for their outstanding service and performance.

Governor Markell, who was also in attendance at the dedication ceremony at Central Middle School in Dover, said these officers "protected the lives of others while putting their own lives at risk."
