A Tulsa Police officer was honored by the National Native American Law Enforcement Association with its Award for Valor.

Officer Jim Whiteshirt, a 31-year veteran of the department, was presented with the national award Thursday morning.

A news release says the award is based on Whiteshirt’s heroic action on April 28, 2009. Whiteshirt along with several other officers responded to a shooting call and found the victim lying on the front porch.
