OFFICER Edward Davies was on the receiving end yesterday of some well-deserved kudos from his fellow cops.
Davies, who was shot in the abdomen during a struggle earlier this year with a career criminal in Feltonville, was given a Police Officer of the Year award during a gathering at the 25th District's headquarters in North Philly.
The married father of four is still slowly recovering from the damage that was caused when Eric Torres allegedly shot the veteran cop under his ballistic vest inside the Almonte Mini-Market at 4th and Annsbury streets.
Davies, 41, underwent several grueling surgeries and lost a kidney. It's unclear when he will be able to return to the force.
