DENVER -- Three Denver police honors were honored Wednesday for going above and beyond what's expected in order to help people in their community.
They received the "Citizens Appreciate Police" awards. These officers spent their own time and money, in one case to provide bikes to kids who had theirs stolen.
Another officer helped get a blind homeless man back on his feet.
"This is huge. We get recognition all the time from within the department," officer Tarl Spitzer says. "To be recognized from the citizens we serve ... this is really something special."
Since its inception in 1978, more than 200 Denver police officers have received the "CAP" award.
