continued LPD Sgt. Mike Manns, who was instrumental in hiring Unger here four years ago, is understandably proud of his protégé.
“The difference between a good cop and a great cop is taking those extra steps,” Manns said. “His work and his interviewing skills helped solve it for them. It’s a great example of inter-agency communication and cooperation.”
The Amherst chief agrees. “Due to the hard work and dedication to duty of Officer Unger a violent felon is now in custody,” Askey wrote.
Unger himself is not convinced he really deserves an award.
“I was just doing what I was supposed to do,” he said.
