The 2015 CIT Award recipient was our own North Palm Beach Police Officer Steven Miller.
On December 28th 2015 Officer Steven Miller responded to a call involving a mentally disturbed male who was suicidal. The male jumped off Earman River bridge and into the Intracoastal waterway. The male was screaming at officers to shoot and kill him. Officer Miller boarded the Marine Unit and talked to the subject while both North Palm Beach and Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office marine patrols guided the male to shallow water. Officer Miller jumped off of the boat and into the water, apprehending the subject without injury.
