Officer Philip Smith with the Evansville Police Department is receiving the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service in Policing.

A ceremony is being held for Officer Smith at the Glenwood Leadership Academy Auditorium, where Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, EPD Chief Billy Bolin, United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler, and local school officials will be present.

“There isn’t an Officer out there more deserving of this award than Phil Smith,” said Chief Bolin. “Through his infectious personality, he leaves a trail of laughter and smiles wherever he goes. He is not only an asset to the Evansville Police Department but to the entire profession of law enforcement.”

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
