New Bedford police officer James Marinelli and civilians Alan Belong and Antonio Lima received certificates of commendation for restraining a suicidal female armed with a knife and saving her from harming herself or others.

“On that day, Officer Marinelli was driving to a paid detail when he heard reports that a woman had a knife and was threatening to harm herself.

When he arrived at the CVS parking lot, he observed Mr. Belong and Mr. Lima holding down the woman and wresting the weapon from her. He helped them safely take the weapon from her without injury to her or anyone else.”
