DALLAS -- It was a night of cheers -- and a lot of tears -- as community leaders gathered to honor 150 members of the Dallas Police Department who went above and beyond the call of duty this past year.

That includes the five officers who died in July's downtown ambush. Their families were on hand to receive the police cross.

Other officers were praised for their commitment to protect and serve, even after the shootings.

"To know that people in the community actually appreciate the work that you do, it goes a long way with pushing you because there are a lot of tough days, but days like this kind of help keep you moving forward," detective Eric Barnes said.

Former Dallas Police chief David Brown even showed up for the ceremony. He said despite his retirement, he would always feel a sense of obligation to DPD.
