On July 6, 2007, surrounded by his family, friends and co-workers, Lieutenant Roley Kiker was recognized by the FHP for an act of heroism that was above and beyond the call of duty. He was presented the Medal of Valor Award - the highest honor bestowed upon an individual by the Florida Highway Patrol.

Lt. Kiker, while off-duty, observed an Escambia County Sheriff's Deputy in a dangerous situation and in need of assistance. The deputy was exiting his patrol car with his firearm drawn. When Lt. Kiker realized the risk to the public, he repositioned his vehicle, putting himself directly in the line of fire. When the suspect aimed his firearm at him, he forced Lt. Kiker to fire his weapon in self-defense. Thanks to Lt. Kiker's quick and decisive actions this incident was brought to a successful conclusion. Lt. Kiker was recognized by the Patrol as the September 2006 Trooper of the Month.

Lt. Kiker is to be commended for his actions. He not only ended a life threatening situation to himself and the deputy, but also removed a violent felon from the community in which he serves. He demonstrated his commitment to the Florida Highway Patrol, and the citizens he serves by his brave actions on that day.
