HEIGHTS – As part of their recent visit to City Hall to discuss issues with Mayor Bill Bazzi, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and Solicitor General Fadwa Hammoud also recognized two police officers for their recent actions in assisting a woman suspected of being in danger.
In February, Officers Ahmad Mazloum and Ali Hammoud responded to a call and conducted a welfare check on a woman who was reportedly being held against her will. Upon arrival, the officers located the woman, assisted her with translation services and provided law enforcement support while agents from the Department of State arrived and conducted their interviews during the incident.
“Their actions were instrumental in helping to resolve the situation.” Nessel said. “Their actions were instrumental in helping to resolve the situation and demonstrated their efforts to go above and beyond in their jobs to help serve their community and their federal partners.
“Law enforcement officers are our real-life heroes and often place themselves at risk in order to protect the members of the communities they serve. There are members of law enforcement that show exceptional bravery in the execution of their duties and as such are deserving of special recognition.”
She concluded by thanking both offers for their service, and presenting each with a proclamation recognizing their actions.
Bazzi was grateful to the Attorney General and Solicitor General for their visit, and equally proud of his officers.
“We appreciate Ms. Nessel and Ms. Hammoud for their visit and support regarding the important issues we discussed,” Bazzi said. “I also appreciate their recognition of officers Mazloum and Hammoud for their outstanding performance.
“Performance like this is just one example of what makes us especially proud of our responders who commit themselves to ensuring our safety and well being. I join Attorney General Nessel and our entire community in saluting these community-minded professionals.”
