Montogmery Police rescue 042621.jpg

Montgomery Police Chief Phil Smith thanks Daniel Krakowski for helping an officer detain a suspect. (Village of Montgomery video still).

Banker by day, dad by night. But to one Montgomery Police Officer, the Oswego resident is a hero.

Daniel Krakowski helped rescue the officer, who was facing trouble.  Krakowski, who is a Plainfield banker, recalled the incident. 

That earned him honors at this week’s Montgomery Village Board meeting, where Montgomery Police Chief Phillip J. Smith presented him with a framed award. This is Smith. 

Chances are, the suspect will think twice if there is a next time. Or he may look twice to see if Krakowski is nearby.
