(KSL News) -- The Utah Attorney General's office today honored a Taylosville police officer for going above and beyond the call of duty and bringing a baby home safely.

Detective Brett Miller was given the Rachel Runyon award for finding young Emma Cannon during an Amber Alert earlier this year.

Emma was kidnapped when her parents' car was stolen. Although he had just gone off duty, Miller decided to go check an area he knew stolen cars were abandoned, and found the baby still in her car seat.

Det. Brett Miller, Taylorsville Police Dept.: "When it comes to children and your fellow officers, it seems that everybody steps it up when they're involved."
