AUSTIN (Nexstar) — Law enforcement officers and first responders who were hurt or killed in the line of duty were honored at the Texas State Capitol on Wednesday.

Gov. Greg Abbott bestowed Star of Texas awards on 50 recipients from local, state, and federal agencies.

“You never know when tragedy may strike, you never know what unexpected event could occur that puts your life on the line, that puts the lives of others on the line,” Abbott said. “What is what makes you genuine heroes is because we need people in the state of Texas who are willing to step up and go into that unknown moment.”
