Detective  Contreras was able to save a life while still dealing  with a person with a gun where deadly  force  was warranted and in most circumstances the only option. With quick thinking Detective  Contreras  was able to kick the firearm away from the suspect and bring the situation to a close with no loss  of life. On behalf  of my self and our Chapter  board we would  like to recognize  Detective Contreras  on a Job well done.
