Sgt. Maklad, other Woodbury officers commended
Woodbury Police Chief Lee Vague got emotional Thursday Feb. 24 at the Woodbury Public Safety Recognition event as he told the story of a group of officers who responded to a rare domestic disturbance involving an armed suspect last year.
He especially recognized Sgt. Omar Maklad, who was wounded in a standoff with the suspect the night of April 15, 2010, and named him Police Officer of the Year.
