This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On May 16, 2016, at 2:00 p.m., the Dallas Police Department held the Eighteenth Annual Theodore Roosevelt Award Ceremony. This years recipient is Senior Corporal Kevin Scahill.

In 1920, the U.S. Congress chartered the Theodore Roosevelt Association to commemorate President Roosevelt and his lifelong admiration for the police profession. Each year, the local Texas Chapter of the Theodore Roosevelt Association gives a very prestigious award to a deserving Dallas Police officer. The award was created for officers who have “overcome an adversity, whether injury, illness or other disability, and who have rendered, and continue to render, outstanding and praiseworthy service to the Dallas Police Department.”

Senior Corporal Kevin Scahill, #4792, is currently assigned to the Dallas Police Department Property Unit. He has been a member of the Dallas Police Department for over 33 years.  More than 16 years ago, he was seriously injured in an off-duty automobile accident.  As a result of his accident he became partially paralyzed and his injury left him unable to engage in many physical activities.  After the onset of his sustained injuries on August 2, 2000, he was reassigned to the Property Unit.  His disability has not hindered him from striving to excel in performing his duties and to be the best employee possible. He always finds a way to perform his duties at an unmatched level in spite of his limited mobility. His willingness to take on daily challenges is a true inspiration to everyone.  Scahill is the 18th recipient of the Theodore Roosevelt Award.
