The bravery of Officer Brad Fox is even earning him honors in death.

The Montgomery County, Pa. police officer who was shot in the head and killed during a traffic stop in September has been named officer of the year.

Fox, a Plymouth Township officer, was killed while pursuing a hit-and-run suspect. Investigators say the suspect, Andrew Thomas, ambushed Fox before later killing himself as police closed in.

The Times Herald reports police Chief Joseph Lawrence named Fox the Plymouth Officer of the Year in a ceremony Thursday night. Fox's widow, Lynsay, accepted the plaque, along with his parents and brother.

The township council also unanimously approved an agreement to continue the Fox family health insurance coverage in the future as if Fox had retired from police service. Fox's wife gave birth to their son, Brad Jr., earlier this year.
