Lawyer John Biernat writes case evaluations, facilitation summaries and motions, and handles personal injury and auto negligence cases in his role as an associate attorney at Padilla Law Group. Previously, John Biernat served as a police officer with the Harper Woods Police Department in Harper Woods, Michigan. He is a recipient of the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor in 2012.
The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor was created according to The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor Act of 2001. The law was passed by the US Congress to honor the commitment of public safety officers who risk their life and limb to protect America’s citizens and communities. The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor is the highest national award to recognize public safety officers’ valor. Every year, the President presents the award to the recipients in a ceremony called for the purpose.
The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor is given to a living or a deceased public safety officer who has demonstrated acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. The act of bravery showed “exceptional courage, extraordinary decisiveness, presence of mind, and unusual swiftness in action” in an attempt to protect or save human life without regard to personal life or safety.
Under The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor Act of 2001, a public safety officer may be a law enforcement officer, a firefighter, a court, civil defense, corrections officer, or an emergency services officer who has served or is serving a public agency with or without compensation.
