His father writes:

"Very proud of my son, Darren Wilson on his receiving a Commendation from his Police Department. Congratulations Son."

The Huffington Post confirmed that the City of Ferguson Council meeting minutes reveal a Feb. 11, 2014, police commendation ceremony. One "Officer D. Wilson" is listed as having received the police honor.
