Last night during the Selectman's meeting Officer Rich Derry received the Medal of Valor for heroic actions taken last year during a home invasion. His brave and timely response is an example to us all. Over 15 of his fellow Sharon Police Officers attended the ceremony, as well as Officer Derry's parents and sons. Rabbi Fish spoke and offered personal thanks to Officer Derry and the Sharon Police Department. The entire ceremony can be viewed on Sharon Cable soon.

I listened to that on the scanner (set for ~60 mile radius from my home) as it went down. Rich is personally known to me, also a fellow gun guy. He's an outstanding officer and human being. Over the years he has waded in (literally) some other very dangerous situations to help save a suicidal person, stopped short of shooting a very dumb teenage girl who was stupid enough to point a pellet gun at him, etc. Of course those prior events happened under a chief who didn't support his men/women, so no recognition was given.

This was a very well deserved recognition of Rich's outstanding work as a police officer.
