Officers Recognized for Service

YPD Awards

Officials with the the Youngstown Police Department handed out awards Thursday to their top cops.

The annual awards ceremony and lunch took place inside the hall at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Youngstown.

Twelve officers were recognized for exceptional performance over the last year.

The top award is the Valor Award and it went to Officer Brad Ditulli. The 11-year veteran of the department shot at a suspect after being hit and dragged by a car during a traffic stop.
