Madison's "Top Cops"

Three Madison police officers are "top cops," and they're being recognized for it.

Officers Shane Pueschner, Jean Papalla and Phil Yanke are getting a national award for their heroic efforts during the Red Caboose hostage incident in March of last year.

A man walked into the Red Caboose early in the morning, taking children and staff hostage.

Officers shot and killed 39-year-old Gregory Velazquez after he injured a worker at the daycare and refused to drop the knives he was carrying.
