An honor for fallen Michigan police officer
A Jackson police officer, who died in the line of duty, is the latest recipient of the Law Enforcement Congressional Badge for Bravery.
James Bonneau was 26 years old when he was killed by a suspect in a domestic assault case. Bonneau was able to call for help, saving the life of another police officer who was also wounded by the suspect. The suspect was also shot and killed during the incident in March, 2010.
Marc Bonneau says his son had always wanted to be a police officer.
"I think he knew from a very small age what they did and what they stood for…and he wanted to be part of that group," says Marc Bonneau.
Fewer than two dozen police officers have received the Congressional Badge for Bravery since it was created in 2008
