Four Oneonta Police officers were recognized for their actions during what was described as a potentially violent situation involving a man with a stolen gun who made threats against himself and others.

Acting Chief Douglas Brenner presented officer Amber Bailey and Sgt. Eric Berger with Certificates of Recognition, Dispatcher Bruce Mazzone with an Outstanding Performance Award and Sgt. Christopher Catapano with the Distinguished Service Medal. The awards were handed out at the May 2nd City Council meeting.
