Some of Duluth's finest were honored on Wednesday.

The Kiwanis Club of Friendly Duluth presented the annual Police Officer and Firefighter of the Year Awards.

Matt Hendrickson was named Police Officer of the Year for 2014. Hendrickson has been with the Duluth Police Department for eight years.

The Firefighter of the Year honor was awarded to Aaron DeCook. He is stationed downtown and has been with the Duluth Fire Department for seven years.

Both recipients said the awards are special honors, because award recipients are nominated by their peers.
