PAUSE 

On 14 January 2005, a journalist from the Police magazine called “To Serve and Protect” went to see the magazine Director and proposed writing an article about the history of police medals awarded to citizens for their assistance to the Police. The presumed name of the article was “Police Medal”.
On 16 January 2005, the journalist went to the Police museum located at Main street number74 to conduct research for the article. While in the museum he was pleased to see pictures, letters of appreciation, and medals given to young citizens for their assistance to the Police during the investigation of crimes.
In the records section of the museum, the journalist read that on May 7, 1947 the Chief of Police reported the kidnapping of an 8 year old girl, when she was walking home from school. He said that this crime might have gone unresolved if there had been no cooperation between the citizens and the police. Two youths, 11 and 15 years old, witnessed the girl being abducted and took down the registration plate number, PK 5386, of the vehicle used to commit the crime. This led to the immediate arrest of the criminals. The girl was freed and returned to her parents.
The common practice of the 20th century was to send letters of thanks to the citizens, but the Police Commission decided that they wanted something special to recognize young people who helped the Police department. It was decided that a "Board of Police Commission Medal" should be formed to plan for the presentation in such cases. Medal designers were instructed to enquire as to the design and costs.
The following resolution was presented and passed unanimously:
The medal was to be made of bronze with the words "Police Commission Award" on the front side of the medal and the reverse side was to specify the name of the recipient as well as the date of the service rendered and the words "For praiseworthy service in law enforcement". The estimated cost of production of this medal was 250 dollars.
The medal presentation was always made in the office of the Mayor, who also served as Chairman of the Police Commission. The first ceremony took place on  the 26th of November, 1947. The medals were awarded to two boys 11 and 15 years old, who reported the abduction of a girl along with vital clues that led to the immediate arrest of the suspects.
 The next award was presented in 1948 on April 15th to a 17 year old male, who had witnessed an armed robbery attempt at a jewelry shop.  The young male began following the gunman. He saw two Police officers and informed them of the circumstances and they were able to arrest the gunman without incident.
Before publishing the article, the director of the Police magazine asked the journalist to come to his office to brief him about the article.

The following conversation is the dialogue between the director of the Police magazine and the journalist.
