LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An LMPD officer is honored for his role in helping people with mental illness in crisis situations.

Chief Steve Conrad presented Officer Tim Davis with the award for Crisis Intervention Team Officer Of The Year on Saturday.

Davis was awarded for helping talk a man with a knife out of an apartment, where that man had barricaded himself.

The officer got the man to a hospital, where he could get help.

The award kicked off the 'Step Forward For Mental Health Walk' at Waterfront Park.

"It brings awareness to it. It shows that people are not alone and that there a lot of people out there that can share experiences together and just know you're not alone," Davis said. 

The walk was put on by the the Louisville affiliate of the National Alliance On Mental Illness.
