The Victoria Police Department honoured two area residents with civic service awards last week for jumping in to help officers protect individuals in serious distress.

Anthony Norman, a protection services officer with the Vancouver Island Health Authority, prevented a man from harming himself at Royal Jubilee Hospital in early December.

Deputy Sheriff Allen Kirschke was recognized for helping two VicPD officers subdue a distraught man at the Victoria Court House on Jan. 27.

VicPD Chief Frank Elsner presented the awards to both men at a ceremony at VicPD headquarters on Feb. 6.
