Today, Dallas Police Officer Ronald Cronin, #8994, was presented with a Life-Saving Award from the Sons of American Revolution for his valiant response to a shooting that occurred at Love Field Airport.
Officer Cronin, a 15-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, without hesitation sprang into action when a female suspect walked into the Love Field Airport on July 25, 2022, pointed a gun towards the ceiling, and fired multiple rounds. Officer Cronin was in the immediate area and quickly engaged the suspect, giving her loud verbal commands to drop the weapon. The suspect disregarded the verbal commands, pointed the gun at Officer Cronin and an innocent bystander, and fired. Officer Cronin took cover behind a ticket kiosk and fired his department-issued weapon, hitting the suspect. Officer Cronin held his position until cover officers arrived and took the suspect into custody.
Congratulations Officer Ronald Cronin for your ‘ heroic and timely actions which resulted in the preservation of human life and brought great credit to yourself and the Dallas Police Department.’
