HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hartford police officer critically injured in a stabbing last year has a new title.
Detective Jill Kidik was promoted on Sunday. Last May, she responded to an argument between a landlord and a tenant. Police say the tenant, 39-year-old Chevoughn Augustin stabbed her in the neck. He’s still being held on bond.
Kidik underwent several surgeries and has made a full recovery. Last week, the Connecticut Police Chief’s Association awarded Detective Kidik with the Medal of Valor, one of the highest distinctions an officer can receive.
