RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Police Department commended six Ridgefield officers on Thursday, March 10, for their actions in a January incident.

The department awarded officers Dan Gjodesen, Dave Samoskevich, Brian Shimko, Jorge Romero and Lou Caba, and Lt. Shawn Platt, its Unit Citation Award at the recent Police Commission meeting.

The commendation is the result of their actions on January 3, when a reckless driver in a stolen vehicle caused multiple accidents. "This was a rapidly evolving situation in which the officers exercised great teamwork and judgement," the department noted. "As a result of these officers' actions, no one was injured and the suspect was arrested."
