Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- Two Montgomery police officers and a supervisor were honored at a presentation ceremony Wednesday.

Corporals J.T. Davis and D.R. Barnes received the honor of Police Officer of the Quarter for January - March, 2008 for a heroic deed that happened in February.

Lieutenant A.S. Tatum was honored as Supervisor of the Quarter for January - March, 2008.

Mayor Bobby Bright wrote of Tatum, " You are to be commended for your outstanding leadership, aggressive crime fighting efforts and great ability in coordinating a small team of professionals..."

Note: Officer Barnes was unable to attend the presentation and will be presented with her certificate and check at a later time.
