With All The Negative Gun Toting Cops Stories, Here Is A Heart Warming Story Of Cops In Service Of Humanity .....
A San Francisco man who almost took his life eight years ago by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge has been reunited with the hero who saved his life.
Kevin Berthia was perched on the iconic bridge ready to take a fatal leap on March 11, 2005, when he heard the voice of California Highway Patrol officer Kevin Briggs calling out to him from above.
Over 60 life-changing minutes, Briggs managed to convince Berthia, as he has done with hundreds of suicidal men and women, to climb back over the rail and give life another shot. Since that significant day Berthia hasn't looked back and is now happily married with two children.
The pair were reconnected after a Yahoo documentary in December 2012 chronicled the work of Briggs' team, centering on Berthia's case.
A resounding image of the man clinging to the bridge as Briggs spoke to him provoked an outpouring of support from the Bay area community.
After he received the award, Briggs said he was 'very humbled, honored and happy' to have the recognition for his team's hard work.
'I (accept this award) on behalf of the California Highway Patrol and police officers across this country who strive to do their best each and every time they receive a suicide call.

The pet life expectancy map of America
Mississippi revealed as worst state for cat survival rates (while Montana is the best place for your dog to live)
We love, feed, and sometimes even go so far as to clothe them, but would you ever relocate for a pet? A new study shows that where you live can impact the lifespan of your cat or dog.
The study, released by Banfield Pet Hospital, shows that four legged companions live longer in Western states, and have the shortest lifespans in Southern states.
In addition to regional health factors that include heartworm disease, lyme disease and heat stroke, the biggest factor in determining lifespan is whether your animal is spayed or neutered.
According to the study dogs live longer in South Dakota, Montana, Oregon, New Mexico, and Colorado, and have shorter lifespans in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Delaware, and Massachusetts.
Cats live longer in Montana, Colorado, Rhode Island, Illinois, and Nebraska, and have shorter lifespans in Delaware, Ohio, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Mississippi.
The study reports that 20 per cent of the cats in Louisiana and Mississippi, states with shorter life expectancy, are not spayed or neutered, but in Montana and Colorado, states with longer life expectancy, 8 per cent of cats are not spayed and neutered.
The statistics also show that neutered male dogs live 18 per cent longer than unneutered male dogs, and spayed female dogs live 23 per cent longer than unspayed female dogs. Neutered male felines have a 62 per cent longer lifespan, and spayed female cats a 39 per cent longer lifespan.

One 12-year-old Las Vegas boy has become a viral video hero after reminding a thirsty police officer he's not above the law.
The young man, who identifies himself as Jeremy in the video, springs into action when he sees a motorcycle cop park illegally on the sidewalk.
The officer was apparently going to buy a soft drink.
'Is there a reason for you to park on the sidewalk?' Jeremy asks. 'Is it like an emergency or anything?'
When the cop refuses to answer, Jeremy goes one step further.
'Can I see your badge number?' he asks.
'Why?' the officer responds.
'Because I have the right to.'
'Are you a lawyer?' The officer asks.
'No I just want to see your badge number.'

Downsizing to happiness: The Ace Ventura director who found true 'wealth' after giving up his 17,000 sq ft mansion and private jet
After suffering post-concussion syndrome following a bicycle accident that left him hyper-sensitive to light and noise, Hollywood director Tom Shadyac changed his life dramatically.
He moved out of his 17,000-square-foot mansion in Pasadena and into a 1,000-square-foot mobile home at a trailer park in Malibu. He also traded his private jet for a bicycle and began to give away a lot of his possessions and money.
His movies - which include Ace Ventura, Patch Adams, Nutty Professor and Bruce Almighty - earned more than one billion dollars at the box office and at one stage he was able to commandeer millions as salary.
Speaking to CBS about his new life, he said: 'I believe I was my least successful when I "had it all".
'I was listening to the social notes of wealth which is all these private jets mansions, a lot of stuff.
'I didn't need a private jet. It costs $44,000 to fly for an hour and a half, someone doesn't even make that in a year.'
So he opened a homeless shelter in Virginia, gives to charities that fight poverty, protects the environment and animals.
'The more I give away the wealthier I feel,' he said. 'For everything I "gave up", so much more was returned. The trappings of fame and fortune are exactly that - a trapping. It's called the spoils of success for a reason.'
As well as the documentary, he has a book out called Life's Operating Manual - which is all about who you are and what your life is about and a depper truer wealth/
