MERITORIOUS PUBLIC SERVICE
Is awarded to Dan Sherman
On October 9, 2004, a physically handicapped male
was assaulted and robbed by several suspects who took items out
of his pockets and took his three-wheel bicycle, which was his
only means of transportation. The detective assigned to the case
exhausted all leads and was unable to locate the stolen bicycle.
Since the loss of the bike had such a negative impact on the
victim's quality of life, the detective contacted several bike
stores in an effort to obtain another three-wheel bicycle for
Mr. Dan Sherman from Northland Cycling and Fitness was the only
store owner willing to assist the department in securing another
bicycle for the victim. After learning of the impact of the robbery
on the victim's life, Mr. Dan Sherman located an identical bike
and donated it to him. He also included front and rear lights
for the bicycle as well as a lock.
Mr. Dan Sherman is awarded the Meritorious Public Service Award
for his willingness to assist the police with community relations
and help the victim of a serious crime regain his independence.
His actions reflect great credit upon him and the citizens of
