Duff is currently recovering after he was shot while trying to stop a shooting-in-progress last month.

Duff told News 8 that the honor means a lot:

“It’s quite an honor. I’m humbled. We also had citizens from New Haven who came to the event. Other law enforcement personnel, as well, came to attend the dinner event. I’d like to thank all of those who supported me and are helping me get better as I continue my recovery”
