Longmont master police officer David Bonday on Thursday received the 2018 Beth Haynes Memorial Award.

Longmont victim services advocate Alexa Moreno also was honored Thursday with 2018 Special Recognition Award, Longmont Police Deputy Chief Jeff Satur said.

Both were recognized for their work with victims of domestic violence, Satur said. He added that police officers Tyler Bartlett, Edna Munoz and Jocelyn Plascencia; master police officer Dillon Cromley and Detective Cody Clark also were nominated.

Numerous officers and detectives from the Boulder Police Department were nominated, along with an officer from the Lafayette Police Department and a detective with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.

Beth Haynes was a Boulder police officer who was killed in 1994 while responding to a domestic violence call. She is the last Boulder officer killed in the line of duty and one of five killed since 1920. The award that bears her name is bestowed upon police officers who work domestic violence cases.

Last year, Longmont Police Detective Brian Dean won the award.
