The Dearborn Police Department and city of Dearborn honored two residents for their honorable actions resulting in the prevention of crime in the city.
Douglas Berry and Ahmed Adam were recognized with civilian commendations for their help in apprehending three suspects.
Berry and his son, Patrick, were at the Dearborn Amtrak station on Sept. 7, because Patrick, who is autistic, loves trains. Berry saw a man acting suspicious near the back of the police station, and called police. Officers arrested the man, who was armed, without incident.
According to Police Chief Ronald Haddad, the man was suicidal and intended to shoot at officers.
Adam witnessed two armed men attempting to rob someone in his neighborhood on Sept. 7. He followed the men and called police, who were able to track down and arrest the suspects.
“This is a shining example of how citizens make our community better,” Haddad said. “We have a safer community because of people like you.”
