PORTLAND — During this morning’s fifth annual Portland Police Award Breakfast, recognition was given to a number of members of the Portland Police Department as well as citizens of the community.

Tyron Calhoun, 17, received this year’s citizen award for jumping to action when a 24-year-old Portland man doused himself with gasoline and lit himself on fire last September at the base of the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow statue in Longfellow Square. Calhoun and his friend, Montique Reddick, used t-shirts and their hands to help put out the fire that engulfed David Parker.

The department named Mary Norton as Civilian of the Year for 2010. Norton has staffed the information desk of Portland Police Department for 32 years, serving as a first point of contact for those entering the station.

Officer Kevin Haley was named Officer of the Year for 2010 and received two commendations for merit, two commendatory letters and was involved in three units that received commendation.

“(This is) not an easy job, and many times it is a thankless job,” Police Chief James Craig said at the end of today’s ceremony.

Addressing those honored with awards and the entire police force, Craig said, “I just want to say thank you.”
