Current and former members of Macon's emergency response forces gathered at Macon's Idol Hour Country Club for the annual Shield Awards.
At the meeting, two officers from the Macon Police Department, the Macon-Bibb County Fire Department, and the Bibb County Sheriff's Office are honored for their dedicated service to our community.
"This is a big event for the club its their one big meeting out of the year and it's a big opportunity for thme to thank our public officials and our officers and the people who serve our country." -- Julia Wood, The Community Foundation
Because of the consolidation, next year there will be three awards for the fire department and three from the sheriff's office.
