Grant consultant and police officer Kris Kloetz receives Congressional Law Enforcement Award

On June 15, 2019, New Hampshire police officer and First Responder Grants consultant Kris Kloetz had to make one of the most difficult decisions an officer can make.

During a confrontation with an armed and intoxicated man in New Hampshire, Kloetz and two fellow officers determined their lives were in imminent danger, and had to use deadly force. While Kloetz also attempted to provide on-scene medical attention, the man succumbed to his wounds.

A subsequent investigation concluded that Kloetz and his fellow officers were justified in their use of deadly force, according to state Attorney General Gordon MacDonald.

On Oct. 1, 2021, Kloetz was awarded the Congressional Law Enforcement Award for Above and Beyond the Call of Duty, the highest law enforcement award one can receive in New Hampshire.

Kloetz was nominated for the award by Chief Mark Lewandoski, and a committee of retired and current law enforcement personnel unanimously approved the recommendation that Kloetz receive the award.

“Enforcement officers are tasked with resolving extremely difficult and dangerous situations,” wrote US Senator Jeanne Shaheen in a letter to Kloetz. “Your actions on this date are an example of how NH law enforcement officers are willing and able to confront difficult situations in order to keep our communities safe.”
