State troopers recognized for their bravery during a violent 22 hour standoff in West Odessa.
Last September, an entire community was on lockdown after the suspect, Victor White, shot at law enforcement.
In the end, White eventually surrendered but not before shooting two deputies and a civilian.
The DPS Aircraft Unit and DPS SWAT team were both given the unit citation award.
Both teams conducted operations that ended the standoff.
