First Responder Friday honors PAPD Officer Lauren Dombi

NEW YORK (WABC) -- This First Responder Friday we honor Lauren Dombi of the PAPD Staten Island Bridges Command.

She won the Cop of the Month Award in February of this year after she apprehended the suspect in an armed carjacking.

The chase started in Staten Island and continued into the cities of Elizabeth and Newark, New Jersey.

Police Officer Dombi successfully ended the armed carjacking and brought the suspect to face criminal charges in two states.

Thank you for your bravery and service!



Whether it's helping out, celebrating a milestone of service, or a first responder in need -- we want to hear about it!
