The first four were recognized for their heroic actions during a July 2020 shooting and standoff with a machete-wielding suspect on the 1400 block of Viejo Lane during a domestic call they responded to. The quad of officers helped rescue a woman and her 3-year-old son amidst an exchange of gunfire with the suspect.
