Detective Kathryn McDaid and Officer Patrick Canty received the IAPOA Life Saving award for their efforts at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15th 2013. Both were near the finish line in separate areas watching for friends when the explosions occurred. Without regard for their own safety and lacking protective equipment, both officers jumped into the crowd to render aid to victims.
Detective McDaid and Officer Canty accepted the award from President Mark O’Toole.
