MERITORIOUS PUBLIC SERVICE

Is awarded to Dan Sherman

On October 9, 2004, a physically handicapped male was assaulted and robbed by several suspects who took items out of his pockets and took his three-wheel bicycle, which was his only means of transportation. The detective assigned to the case exhausted all leads and was unable to locate the stolen bicycle.

Since the loss of the bike had such a negative impact on the victim's quality of life, the detective contacted several bike stores in an effort to obtain another three-wheel bicycle for him.

Mr. Dan Sherman from Northland Cycling and Fitness was the only store owner willing to assist the department in securing another bicycle for the victim. After learning of the impact of the robbery on the victim's life, Mr. Dan Sherman located an identical bike and donated it to him. He also included front and rear lights for the bicycle as well as a lock.

Mr. Dan Sherman is awarded the Meritorious Public Service Award for his willingness to assist the police with community relations and help the victim of a serious crime regain his independence. His actions reflect great credit upon him and the citizens of Columbus.
