 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.
