LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Police officers work every day to keep the community safe. And the Lafayette Police Department has named its officer of the year.

Bernard Myers is a 16-year veteran of LPD.

In that time, he has done his fair share of police work.

In the past year, his peers saw something special in him and nominated him for the award.

Officers are often modest about their accomplishments, but Myers says he was just lucky.

"Being lucky enough to handle high profile calls. Things that stick out in people's minds that make them recall 'hey he was on that high profile call' or 'they solved that case', 'they caught that suspect,' those types of situations," said Myers.

Myers says any of his fellow officers could have won the award just as easily as he did.

He says police work is rarely a solitary effort.

Nevertheless, he is honored to receive the award.
