Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) police officer Tommy Edward Scott — who was killed last year during an altercation while on patrol — was honored with an Outstanding Service to the Community Award by the Westchester Elks Lodge.
Scott was a four-year veteran of the Airport Police.
Curt Curtiss, a member of the Westchester Elks Lodge, presented Hubert Scott, Tommy Scott’s father, with the award Tuesday, February 21st, during a City of Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners meeting at LAX.
The Westchester Elks Lodge each year recognizes officers from law enforcement agencies in the airport area for their outstanding service to the community.
As the 2005 recipient, Scott was added to the Westchester Elks plaque honoring previous officers.
Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl presented Scott’s father with an Officer of the Year Award.
Scott’s father also accepted Certificates of Special Recognition for his son from Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
