WN Test Story
A Wichita police officer who Chief Gordon Ramsay was "purposely hit" Tuesday has received several honors during his career.
The police department released a biography of Officer Brian Arterburn late Wednesday. It noted he has served in the Patrol South Bureau since 1999. The awards Arterburn has received include:
- 1995: Bronze Wreath of Merit
- 1998: Bronze Wreath of Valor, lifesaving award
- 2001: Officer of the Year
- 2005: Silver Wreath of Valor
In addition, the biography said Arterburn has been active with Big Brothers-Big Sisters and Kansas Special Olympics projects.
"He's the kind of officer I would want to show up at my home if I was in need of help," Ramsay wrote on Facebook.
