PEEKSKILL - It's National Police Week in the Hudson Valley, and officers around the region are being recognized for their extraordinary efforts in the line of duty.

At last night's City Council meeting, nine Peekskill police officers were honored with certificates and commendation medals for their bravery and for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Some of the officers recognized were credited for rescuing a woman from a frigid creek by forming a human chain. Others helped some people on the verge of suicide.

In the city of Yonkers, Police Commissioner Charles Gardner was awarded a proclamation from the city in a special ceremony at City Hall. He says Yonkers police officers deserve the recognition and praise.

Police Week runs until Saturday.
