Raft of troopers commended for actions
Col. Robert Quinn called the troopers to the stage by name individually or in groups during a two-hour ceremony at the Police Standards and Training Council and recounted the instances that led to meritorious performances.
“You put your lives on the line every day. It’s a very, very, very difficult job,” Quinn told the group. “For all the Monday morning quarterbacks that are out there in the world, let them put this uniform on and see for themselves.”
“Public safety is truly our most important responsibility. Our people our families, and our economy can not thrive without safe communities,” Hassan said. “Thanks to your dedication the well being New Hampshire is consistently recognized as one of the safest states in the nation. I know I can speak on behalf of all the people of New Hampshire in saying thank you for putting your lives on the line every day to protect ours.”
One was retired Sgt. Benjamin Mozrall, who was wounded in a shootout that killed a priest at a church in Littleton in 1979.
