But politics or not, here are the 11 officers who showed exceptional bravery in order to make San Francisco a safer place:

Gold Medal of Valor:

  • Lt. Henry Parra
  • Sgt. Russell Gordon
  • Sgt. Timothy Paine
  • Sgt. James O'Malley
  • Sgt. Gregory Kane
  • Off. William Eleiff
  • Off. Steven Stearns

Bronze Medal of Valor:

  • Off. Roderick Suguitan
  • Off. Michael Peregoy
  • Off. James Trail
  • Off. Uwem Obot

They are all being honored at a ceremony Wednesday night.
