“The heroism of MNPD officers Collazo and Engelbert on March 27th, 2023 saved countless lives. Their bravery and disregard for personal safety to protect others is nothing short of noble and deserving of national recognition in history,” said Congressman Ogles. "I submitted to the Congressional Record a statement to memorialize their acts of valor and nominated each officer for a Congressional Gold Medal.
